Jake White said : “If there are eight bitter or unhappy players, it can derail a campaign. Throughout the tournament, it came down to how they were managed, how honest we were with them, how much a part of the match 22 they felt, how they were looked after physically and contributed to training sessions. I’d often thank those eight guys for their contributions. I was open with them about why they were not selected, and I kept them on their toes by running moves (that included them). As coaching staff we ensured that we ran the same plays with different sets of players. It kept everyone sharp, and made those who weren’t selected feel they were contributing in the real way they were. Gary Botha is a great example of the perfect team player. He started the year as number two hooker behind John Smit, and by the end of the World Cup he was behind Bismarck du Plessis in the pecking order. That was tough on him, but you don’t become a Test hooker unless you’re a tough person. His positive approach summed up the attitudes of the other unlucky seven. Gary had been my number two hooker when the World Cup squad was named, as he was such a team man. Circumstances changed, but Gary’s attitude didn’t. Wikus van Heerden was the same. He was in and out of the side. Ricky Januarie had been our number one scrumhalf choice in 2005, but had slipped to number three in 2007. Yet he remained positive. I believe I’ve shown consistency in four years as a coach, because Ricky knows I left him out based purely on a rugby decision. Fourie du Preez had moved to number one scrumhalf and Ricky had dropped down the pecking order. He handled himself brilliantly. Wayne Julies, Akona Ndungane, Bob Skinstad, Gurthro Steenkamp, Ricky, Gary, Albert van den Berg and Ashwin Willemse – the eight who missed out on the final have my greatest respect,” External link

Jake White said : “If there are eight bitter or unhappy players, it can derail a campaign. Throughout the tournament, it came down to how they were managed, how honest we were with them, how much a part of the match 22 they felt, how they were looked after physically and contributed to training sessions. I’d often thank those eight guys for their contributions. I was open with them about why they were not selected, and I kept them on their toes by running moves (that included them). As coaching staff we ensured that we ran the same plays with different sets of players. It kept everyone sharp, and made those who weren’t selected feel they were contributing in the real way they were. Gary Botha is a great example of the perfect team player. He started the year as number two hooker behind John Smit, and by the end of the World Cup he was behind Bismarck du Plessis in the pecking order. That was tough on him, but you don’t become a Test hooker unless you’re a tough person. His positive approach summed up the attitudes of the other unlucky seven. Gary had been my number two hooker when the World Cup squad was named, as he was such a team man. Circumstances changed, but Gary’s attitude didn’t. Wikus van Heerden was the same. He was in and out of the side. Ricky Januarie had been our number one scrumhalf choice in 2005, but had slipped to number three in 2007. Yet he remained positive. I believe I’ve shown consistency in four years as a coach, because Ricky knows I left him out based purely on a rugby decision. Fourie du Preez had moved to number one scrumhalf and Ricky had dropped down the pecking order. He handled himself brilliantly. Wayne Julies, Akona Ndungane, Bob Skinstad, Gurthro Steenkamp, Ricky, Gary, Albert van den Berg and Ashwin Willemse – the eight who missed out on the final have my greatest respect,” External link
