That's the thing, we have enough guys with domestic experience. 

but not enough guys with proper test experience . As far as I understand SARU pays a portion of the salaries, we will be better off splitting that cost and bringing in some of the current bok crop into our structures.

SARU only pays a portion of players that's got a Springbok contract salary, not ex boks...
Anyways, ito the value of "experience", I am sure we are all well aware of what happened to the "most experienced" Springbok team ever at Brighton in 2015...
Sure experience is valuable, but it should never be the biggest factor in any player recruitment. 
Jannie du Plessis has eons of experience, but I am still not convinced he is worth his salary, I would pick a Carlu Sadie over him any day. Mapoe and Combrinck are a quality players and I am sure they could still add value to the team since they are only about 30 now.
Willem Alberts is also quality, but I would rather have him play 4 lock, if he doesn't want to, then maybe he should also move along then. With Jannie and Willem's salary we can easily afford a quality young"ish" hooker and lock, hell even combine the two and try and get Franco Mostert back.
We have enough experience, it is time to get a proper, quality coach that can develop the remaining youngsters into a formidable team.
I am more than willing to wait another 2 or 3 years for another playoff game, as long as it is evident that the team is improving every week, but I am not confident that the current coaching staff can follow in Ackermann's footsteps.

Great nuus! Baie positiewe nuus oor Leeus tans in media! Sien ook op social media is Lions baie aktief. Dink solank Strauli en Allers by Lions is kan ons net positief bly. Hopelik kan hulle ook nog Ruan Combrinck, Lionel Mapoe (sien hy het gister op Facebook 'n foto met 'n Leeu trui gepost het) en Jacques van Rooyen teken

Ek stem, miskien net wat ons nodig het op 12. En hy het iets om te bewys.

I rate Odendaal but how are we going to manage all our centers? Kriel, Simelane, Odendaal, etc.

I think Odendaal and Simelane will be first choice and should be given time to develope their combination. Not sure where and how Viljoen will fit into the mix though... 
I get "Building depth" but i still think we should get a proper starting 15 first... Still waiting to see a proper hooker and lock sign...

9. Dillon Smit/ Ross Cronje
10. Elton Jantjies/ Gianni Lombard
11. Skosan
12. Odendaal
13. Simelane/ Viljoen
14. Stiaan Pienaar/ Ulengo
15. Andries Coetzee

More than decent backline though...

So ons het hoeveel agterspelers nou al gekoop sedert super rugby gestop is?

Rabz
Odendaal
Viljoen
Divan Rossouw

So op vleuel het ons Skosan, Pienaar, Ulengo, Rossouw, Rabz. Is 5 vleuels regtig nodig?
Senters het ons Kriel, Odendaal, Simelane, Viljoen

Voorspelers bygekoop:
Dreyer
Visagie?

Dit voel vir my net of ons verkeerde spelers koop en nie waar ons regtig geen kwalitiet/diepte het nie
