Flyhalf curse strikes Cheetahs next

Naka Drotske is just the latest South African Super 14 coach to suddenly find himself looking around desperately for a flyhalf. Griquas Pivot Naas Olivier, likely to be the Cheetahs first choice this season, will miss at least the opening game of the competition due to a knee injury.

The injuries to Juan Martin Hernandez and Ruan Pienaar at the Sharks have had a domino effect. Monty Dumon would have played for the Cheetahs but now rather looks like being the Sharks first choice, in a strange reversal of fortune.

Drotske now faces the unenviable prospect of starting with the former Lions pivot Louis Strydom, a journeyman at best, or trusting the young Sias Ebersohn, himself yet to make his mark on the Currie Cup stage. Last year’s Cheetahs flyhalf, Jacques-Louis Potgieter, has returned to Pretoria, where he will sit on the Bulls bench behind Bok Morne Steyn.

One wonders how long it will be before the third Bulls pivot, young Francois Brummer, receives an SOS to join either the Cheetahs or the Sharks, perhaps on a loan basis.

  • SA does not exactly have a flyhalf factory the way we have a looseforward one, why dont the sharks just sign brummer on a permanent basis or make the cheetahs flyhalf crisis worse by signing sias ebersohn

  • Maybe the Cheaters can try to sign Earl Rose . . . That way they`ll sommer increase the Lions` chances. ” Everyone`s a winner at the Cotton Club” !
