JP: Give me the No 15 jersey

Springbok wing JP Pietersen says he wants the No 15 jersey as rumours circulate about who will play fullback when the British and Irish Lions meet the Springboks in Durban on June 20.

JJ Harmse reports for sport24 - In the past couple of weeks, the Bok management team have refused to divulge who will play in the No 15 position but Pietersen will be only too happy to take on the task.

The versatile Sharks star believes he will have no problems, should he be selected as a fullback. “I made my debut there for the Sharks and the Springboks. My last Test as a fullback was in 2007 against the All Blacks in Christchurch.”

“It is not my decision where I play, but if the coach puts me there, I would love to play the position. I have the confidence to play fullback or wing.”

Pietersen in his debut Test against the Wallabies in 2006, played fullback but the 23-year-old player pointed out that he had since then gained a lot of experience. “I am definitely a more mature player now.”

He believes his kicking game has especially improved. “It had to get better,” he laughed.

“Remember, I have been working for four years on my kicking and it is definitely better than in the beginning of my rugby career. It will definitely not be a problem for me.”

Pietersen, over the years, has cemented his place in the Bok team as a right wing, where he scored most of his 10 Test tries.
He expressed surprise that the British and Irish Lions used the up and under defence methods.

“I was surprised to see them using that style. We will therefore have to cut them on the inside and use things like short kicks. It will pay off to go and see how other teams played against us when we used the same technique.”

Pietersen said he and his team-mates had taken note of how the visitors had played especially along the back.

“The Lions were polished and Jamie Roberts and the rest were very impressive.”

Pietersen has only been on a losing side six times in his career – three times in Australia and three times against New Zealand. Depending on where he is chosen for the Springboks, this statistic may remain unchanged.

  • JP is a damn fine player but I’d prefer him on the wing with Fourie or Steyn at fullback.

    There, I said it!

    Frans Steyn at fullback!!! :shock:

  • JPP is a awesome player , but should not be taken out of what he does good right now , he would make a good full back , his problem though is he isnt the best of kickers and he does not kick with both feet

    I would prefer Stef Terreblanche or Zane Kirchner, but that would be too logical. I mean why do you really need a specialist fullback for a once in 12 years happening.

    Weird that no one has an idea who will be fullback. :shock:

  • @Prof. Ice (Comment 17) :
    Im also a Stef fan, especially when it comes to fielding bombs and following up on his own. Kirchner, in the last 3 weeks has proved that he wont let anyone down – I really feel for him.

    At the end of the day, whoever plays will be playing out of their normal position and if they stuff up it could be a serious confidence breaker and downer for them, and that wont be their fault.

    On the other hand why would you want to play one of the best wings in the world out of position, ditto for one of the worlds best centres.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 47) : I am not at liberty to comment about who plays where at the sharks…not sure you could afford to play any of those guys out of position with the shoody depth the sharks seem to have at 15 and 12, although some of your younger wings do certainly look like they would manage at Super 14 level – but that said i think JP should stick to wing – he does well there.

    Steyn on the other hand probably would have been a shoo in for the 15 jersey if the Sharks stopped playing muscial positions with the poor kid – and then complain about his performances when he is expected to be masterful at 10, 12 14 and 15.

    Makes you think doesn’t it – you guys are busy destroying one of your best talents because both the coaching staff and the player himself are incapable about making there minds up.

    Another player of similar calibre comes to mind – but thats another argument

    Plum thinks Stefs right for the job – i think Plums on crack .

  • @Worcestershire Sauce (Comment 49) :
    OK, sO YoU mUSt thINK iM ON cRAck as wELl.
    It was more our shoddy depth at 10 that had Steyn playing “out of position”
    Plums intention was to play Steyn at centre for the Super 14. Pienaars injury caused the shift. I believe that if fortune had favoured the Sharks, Steyn would have played in 1 position only. On him playing fullback I think everyone agrees that it will probably still prove to be his best position. Be that as it may, its not a position that he has played in for along time now (he cant even remember when last he played there)and he will probably be expected to play there in the tests.

    As far as destroying a great talent – I agree on that, I also hope that he can be chosen in one position only and let him settle there ( even if it means playing Monty or an other at flyhalf) On the other hand I dont think it will happen, regardless of for whom he is playing, Sharks, Boks or R Metro – his natural talent will always be seen as a stopgap for one or other position where some first choice player gets injured/loses form.

    Having a player like Terreblanche available would have made playing Steyn at centre an easy choice. Accusing the coach of being on crack for playing one of the countries best fullbacks seems a bit harsh

    And nowadays I have regular contact with a Scots lady who has the most amazing pronounciation and clear language.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 68) : Countries best fullbacks is an opinion i think held oly in KZN…i suspect most would put Kischner, Jantjies, Montgomery {Evn though that clown who coaches WP failed to see it} And Ludik well above Stef.

    But thats the beauty about rugby we all see different things and have a massive bias towards our local players.

  • I thought the Sharks guys AND gals would enjoy this one: :mrgreen:

    Taken from an article by Brendan McCullum on IOL:

    What might be a minor problem when the Bulls join up with the rest of the Springboks in Durban on Tuesday is the small matter of copyright infringement.

    Beast Mtawarira has been greeted around the world with a drawn-out roar of “Beeaassst!”, even at Loftus. On Saturday at the Super 14 final, every time Pierre Spies touched the ball it was accompanied by “Spieeesss!”

    “Beast and I watched the game and we really got upset when we heard that,” said a deadpan Bismarck du Plessis, before breaking into a wide smile. Beside him the loosehead prop shook his head and laughed.

    “The guys in the camp have been teasing me about that. I think it’s great for the guys to shout for Pierre,” said Mtawarira.

  • I’m very concerned about the first test. The Boks really SHOULD beat this B&I Lions side 3-0 but by the time of the first test in Durban the Lions will have had plenty of time to gel and get combinations working etc, the tour schedule actually works perfectly for them. The Boks could be seriously undercooked with only a friendly against that “Namibian XV”…certainly no tough encounters to iron out any rough edges.

    We just have to hope that the Sharks and Bulls combinations from the SUper 14 are working well. We also have the eccentricity of PDV to worry about.

    The first test could be a banana skin!! Just hope not!

    Now you are being intentional in twisting my words, I said one of the countries best fullbacks, not the best. I agree on Kirshner, and you will see I said so, and I said I really feel for him.
    Further Percy has retired, Jantjes is injured (and to me well below Stef) and , conveniently for me, Ludik is injured.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 81) : Not my intention to twist your words. Just making the point that the cresendo of calls for Stefs inclusion is limited to this blog by my experience. And as you point out – just about everyone else is crocked or not picked.

  • @Worcestershire Sauce (Comment 85) :
    Many a rugby scribe has favoured Stef but he was never going to be a serious contender, mainly due to his age, but to a large extent because there was a bright youngster on the up with all the right credentials, namely Zane Kirchner, who all were willing to overlook Stefan for. As I said I really feel for Kirchner and would easily accept and welcome his inclusion above Stefan, but neither of them being in the frame is plain shortsighted imo.

    The more I think of it the more convinced that it will be F Steyn in the 15 jersey.

    I hope you are wrong. F Steyn would be my next logical choice so that means that he is probably doomed for the bench, at best. Oh man I hope you are wrong.

    If somewhere around Joburg – there is a Polish butcher who has a stall at Rosebank Market (every Sunday) – mouthwatering stuff. The cake lady is also Polish – me thinks, but her cakes do not look too familiar.

  • Okay I haven’t read ANY of the comments, but JJ Harmse spews such drivel.

    Earlier he had an article on News 24 with this big headline “Habana stays true to blue” or some crap like that. Then in the article he continued to say that Habana said he would certainly entertain the offer from the Bulls to stay but was also considering offers from abroad, after his contract expires at the end of the year.

    No this headline, “JP: Give me the No 15 jersey” When infact JPP said nothing of the F%&&en sort!!!!!!!!!!!! All he says is “It is not my decision where I play, but if the coach puts me there, I would love to play the position”

    JJ Harmse is a dimwit who makes up phrases to suit himself. :evil:
