Vodacom Bulls hooker, Chiliboy Ralepelle, showed why many rate him as a shoe-in for Heyneke Meyer’s first Springbok team to be announced in June.
He played with great determination and drive during the 80 minutes he was on the field against the Stormers and showed that he indeed matured into a player that can last the distance with ease.
His line-outs were good, his drives around the mauls first class and his strong showing in the scrum proved how valuable his work in the gym has been.
Most of all, he stole ball on the ground and created turnovers, giving the Bulls a chance to start counter-attacks.
