Who will play flyhalf
Many will have welcomed the addition of Lions flyhalf Elton Jantjies to Heyneke Meyer’s group for the last part of the home leg of The Castle Rugby Championship — but only the next few days will tell us whether it was a meaningful move.
As the Springbok coach himself pointed out after making the announcement of the 30-man squad, Jantjies was part of the group that gathered for the England series that started his tenure. But he didn’t play any meaningful role, and with Morne Steyn still in the squad selected for the matches against Australia in Pretoria on Saturday and then the All Blacks at FNB Stadium in Soweto the following week, there is no guarantee he will play now either.
Realistically we have no chance of winning this competition so I think it’s time to give some youngsters a run.
I personally would like to see Steyn and Kirchner fully rested for this weekend’s game with Goosen starting and Jantjies on the bench. Lambie starting at 15 with Taute on the bench.
I would like to see the bench players come on for the last 20 minutes.
