LISTEN: Bok flyhalf debate

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 08:57

RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIP SPOTLIGHT: Handré Pollard and Curwin Bosch are the main challengers to Elton Jantjies for the Springbok No.10 jersey. But are they ready?

The Blue Bulls' New Zealand coach John Mitchell thinks Bosch is still a little bit 'young' and 'light' for Test rugby and should be nurtured.

Mitchell also feels Pollard is bit 'rusty' and needs more game time.

Sharks coach Robert du Preez had a slightly different take and said Durban's wet weather suited Bosch's game perfectly - as they beat the Bulls in a Currie Cup match at the weekend.

So will either of them be able to replace Jantjies when South Africa take on Australia in Bloemfontein on Saturday - when the Rugby Championship resumes?
