Burger took over the captaincy from JDV is Stormers, he lead superbly where they have reached the super rugby finals..but Juan Smith is not that bad too

he would be a brilliant captain --leads by example, is a world legend, and inspirational to be in any side -- plus for such a big guy his ball skills are incredible

How about seeing who's fit and in form first...? Or is that a concept that evades you John?
If both are fit and in form, I'd prefer Juan Smith. I think he's a much better captain than Burger. And I'm a Stormers fan. Even Jean de Villiers is a better captain for me. Besides, Burger plays at his best when he's not captain...

Under any circumstances it would be hard to deny burger the role, I see many great young players coming into the bokke side but none lead so well as burger either by speech or by relentless hard work on and off the field.

It is too early to take a decision, it also depends upon the blend they will bring in.
In case Erasmus takes the top job, Burger is an obvious candidate.
