As we all understand, Amakhosi have produced two traditional centre-forwards Samir Nurkovich and Leonardo Castro before the beginning of this term.

The Glamor Boys have since remained with what you can only call “forwards”. Du Preez, Khama Billiat and young sensation Mduduzi Shabalala get into the box to score, but it’s not in their nature to stay there and fight for the ball with their physicality.


After the start of the preseason, none of us really saw what was coming. Amakhosi invited no fewer than four different nines before coach Zwane and his assistant Dylan Sheppard turned them all down.

The list includes Wade Lekai, Fouad Johnson, Bonfils-Caleb Bimen’imana and Darren Smith.

These options below may not be anywhere close to what Zwane wants, but hey, they’re worth considering. Who knows if Zvane will read this and make the necessary calls?
