Nine or the bench – Hougaard
Springbok utility back Francois Hougaard wants to play only scrumhalf next season and admits that he would rather play off the bench for the Boks if it meant he could put all his focus into improving in the number nine jersey.
In a refreshingly open interview with the Keo.co.za website, Hougaard admitted to feeling frustrated by his move to the wing this season for the Boks, after starting the season in his preferred position of scrumhalf.
He better improve on his box kicking or he won’t even be on the bench. Why do coaches persist in playing players in positions that they don’t want to play. If he is not wanted at 9 leave him out!
