Cape Town - Sport24 readers were disappointed with Patrick Lambie's performance against Scotland.

Should the Springboks turn to Elton Jantjies or Morne Steyn - or is Heyneke Meyer's game plan to blame?

Here's what Sport24 readers had to say:

"Feel sorry for Lambie, shackled by HM game plan." - John

"Lambie, a natural attacking-minded player, is being hampered by HM's static and robotic game plan and it's putting him in disarray." - Sean

"So frustrating watching Lambie being coached out of his natural game."
- luke.hahn.7

"If the coaches give him freedom to control the game Lambie-style, we're gonna see magic!"
- jana.scheepers

"Why do u want to fire Lambie? For playing the game plan that's prescribed?" - fef.gericke

"Meyer has bowed to public pressure to put Lambie at No 10 but has drilled the 10 man rugby game plan into his head which means kick, kick, kick." - FerretGee

"The coach cannot control HOW you kick. Lambie kicked terribly. Bad decision making on the field. Sorry Pat, I'm a fan but wont be for long if you keep playing like this."
- Squeegeepilot

"I repeat: RIP Patrick Lambie ~ HM has destroyed you."
- raymond.dick.12

"I thought he executed Meyer's plan to a tee."
- kaapse.skollie

"50 bucks says Heyneke starts Morne against England."
- bheki.cele.1650

"I think Lambie has about 20% better kick success rate than Steyn this season."
- deon.mayer.752

"We need Morne Steyn's superior tactical kicking for the England game." - HQ

"Lambie is not a 10." - jco.van.rooyen

"Shows you the HUGE difference between Currie Cup and Test rugby. Look at Lambie. Nothing more than your average Flyhalf. I still say give him a run at fullback."
- andre.rabie.10

"Lambie is overrated please go back to a specialist flyhalf." - izan.botes.7

"It was clear as daylight why Elton Jantjies is not playing, he doesn't want to play the kicking game of Meyer, he's a running flyhalf." - roger.plaaitjies.79

"If we go in with Lambie at 10 against Eng we will lose."
- jacqueduplessis

"Time to bring Elton Jantjies in so our backs can run it." - jeromeanthony.daniels


Has the Lambie experiment failed? Is it time for a change of personnel or gameplan? (AFP)
