Chiliboy Ralepele

Few people are willing to enter into the heated debate about whether Springbok captain John Smit is the best hooker in the land. With this in mind, you can understand why Chiliboy is not enjoying as much game time in a Springbok jersey as he deserves. The trouble is he has to play in the same position as Smit. It is like having to be a flyhalf in the same team as Naas Botha in the 1970s and 1980s. It is simply bad timing and Chiliboy just needs to bide his time. When his time does come, Chiliboy will hopefully reproduce the form that made him a world junior champion (under-19) and a finalist when he was captain of the under-21 side that won the silver. With Chiliboy it is only a matter of time.
