Late positional swap?

It has been brought to my attention by a certain “board member” of reports hitting twitter, sport24, Die Beeld (or JJ Harmse) and of course the awesome sauce that is wpw, that there is a late positional switch for the Boks this coming weekend.

Judging by drills run at practice and quotes from certain players it seems Pat Lambie will indeed be running at flyhalf with Morne Steyn playing at fullback. With thanks to wpw who broke the news earlier this week ;-)

Steyn has had a little experience playing in the last line and doesn’t seem too worried about slotting in there, “I may not have played many games at fullback, but I’m confident that I could make a success of it,”.

This move will hopefully add a much needed spark to what could be a quite explosive backline, but one also has to wonder what this means for Steyn’s World Cup ambitions?

  • @molly (Comment 1) : Sjoe Molly. I thought this would be a story about Nic Groom and Berton Klaasen being promoted to the WP bench or the return of Coleman to your u21 team.

    Guess I’m so use to you doing the Province thang :grin:

  • this could be awesome even thou our backline will be going up against the best there basicly is, but there is always hope. if this works well and SuperPat shows the whole world why he deserves the No:10 on his back more than Sten at the moment then there will be a lot of question marks behind Steyn’s name closer to the WC.

  • Wes… I’m impressed if you managed to call this one so early.

    I do believe Steyn as played a few games at 15 in the past, and if he has to be played for his kicking, it could be the place to play him – we don’t have any stand-outs there at the moment.

  • it doesn’t get any more difficult than an away game against the all blacks with an “injury ravaged team” thats just been klapped by the aussies, to make your run on debut. That being said if there’s anyone that can make a success of it its Lambie. I just hope our pack gains parity so Lambie isn’t constantly under pressure. Go Lambie Carpe Diem :smile:

  • Morne cant tackle or defend to save his life. Still got a hole in defense and at full back he is going to be exposed.

  • @molly (Comment 6) : Molly, he seemed a bit iffy last season but I thought he was outstanding in game 1 against the Leopards u21 last week. I could see major improvements. Saturday is obviously a step up again but what’s good about him is apart from the physical dimension that he brings, he like most other WP centres knows how to distribute when required. Hopefully he gets onto the park for some decent game time and everyone can form an opinion of him.

  • I think its awsome that lambie is @ 10…I am not so convinced though with Morne at 15….surely Odwa could have covered that and if they seriously neede Morne on the field he could have slotted in on inside centre? or would that have been even a bigger risk?

  • @Clayton(PJLD) (Comment 25) : The problem I have with the switch the way it is, is that if Steyn is out of sorts then Lambie will be moved to cover Steyns ass at Fulback and we’ll end up with a 1D flyhalf again.

    Maybe trying Steyn at FB is PdV looking for a way to keep Steyn in the RWC squad other than the #3 flyhalf.

  • @RuckingFun (Comment 16) : I know, it’s a bit of a shame that Lambie’s first start has to be in this game. According To John Smit, he’s had a hard time lifting the spirits of this downtrodden lot, and while I predict the All Blacks to run riot, if there’s anyone who can shine in the face of such adversity it’s Lambie. Hope the kid has a good one.

  • Personally i believe this move should have happened a year ago!! Since Frans Steyn decided to have a holiday in France there has been no real fullback contender for the Boks and I think Steyn would fit this role perfectly as his kicking out of hand is pretty good. And for those that say Steyn cant run, cast your minds back to the beginning of his career when he was in fact a running flyhalf before the Bulls brainwashed him. Perhaps the space and time at the back will be just the thing he needs to rediscover his running ability.

  • @SharonvanWyk (Comment 46) : john smit vouching for 3DPat:

    Patrick Lambie might be having his first start for South Africa on Saturday in Wellington against the All Blacks but he goes into the game with a huge credit from his captain.

    John Smit said in his regular pre-Test media conference that Lambie, who is from Smit’s Sharks franchise based in Durban, that Lambie was ‘an amazing young man’.

    “I always say to people who want to know what he is like that if you had a daughter who was about 18-years-old and he came to knock on the door as a rugby player he’s probably the only one you would let her walk out the door with.

    “He’s an absolute gentleman, he’s really well brought up, really intelligent, respectful. He commands his position even as a 20-year-old. For me he’s shown ability at 10, 12 or 15, he’s the kind of guy who’s got all-round skills and composure that is not the norm for a guy of his age so I do think he’ll be around for a long time.

    “He’s got a huge amount of potential for leadership as well and it will be wonderful to watch him grow even more,” he said.

    Smit said that he had been involved with him for two or three years yet in the short amount of time he had at the highest level he had slotted in very quickly.

  • @SharonvanWyk (Comment 52) : more praise for 3DPat from the highest echelons:

    “Steyn is probably the most proven at international level but in saying that James won the World Cup, he’s a fierce competitor but I’ve been impressed with Lambie this year and how he’s played.

    “The thing that I’m impressed most about is his all-round game.
    He’s not one-dimensional,
    he’s got a fantastic kick on him but he can also run the ball as well and he’s a real attacking threat.

    “If they’re looking to use the ball he’d be a valuable part of that side if he got the nod for the 10 jersey so it’s good for the South Africans, they’ve got a lot of competition there which brings out the best in players,” he said – Daniel Carter

    I am a wordsmith, and I find it hard to put into words just how much he touches and impresses everyone he comes into contact with. And he does it all unwittingly, with no conscious knowledge of what an amazing, positive effect he has on people. He’s truly special. And if the world had more like him it would be a much better place. :cool:

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 72) : yeah, i know. cruden also had a lukewarm first start last year agains the aussies, but i blame that more on piri, who was taking 2 steps before he passed to the kid, allowing the aussie defence t o cut his space…

    lambie must sink or swim, he is a shark so he is a deepwater kid.

  • Great news. Though I would have had Odwa or Ruan at FB. McLeod could have gone to scrummie. Lambie and Ruan played all season together it would have made sense.

    Anyhow good luck to Lambie.

  • This must rank as one of the toughest (if not the toughest) of debuts as Bok flyhalf. You have my support Pat!

  • It’s a pity the Bok management couldn’t have kept this positional change under wraps until kick-off tomorrow… it would have given us a HUGE advantage because it would have changed the way the Kiwi’s would have prepared for us.

    Instead of them taking the day off today, now they’ve got some work to do :mrgreen:

    Although this is a very positive move… I just feel that it is again showing the tactical naivity of the Bok management that they couldn’t see the benefit of keeping this under wraps?

  • @wpw (Comment 94) : she does not mean ‘stiek uit’ – she means she is way taller than the rest of us! ;-)

  • Im sure Lambie and Steyn will interchange during the game depending on what is required at that particular time.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 98) : But how would Morne Steyn know that Lambie simply wants to kick away possession so they could swap positions? Is the deer-in-the-headlights look the signal? :mrgreen:
