Boks in UK
Lambie told to spark backline
Cape Town - Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer
has urged flyhalf Patrick Lambie
to play more to his natural attacking instincts against England at Twickenham on Saturday.
Lambie was on Wednesday included to start at flyhalf for the third Test in a row as the Boks look to remain unbeaten on their three-Test European tour.
He also featured in earlier wins over Ireland (16-12) in Dublin and Scotland (21-10) in Edinburgh.
But Meyer wants his pivot to show more on attack on Saturday.
"In my individual chat with Pat I told him he should play his natural game," Meyer told the Beeld website
"Pat has always been a guy who plays relatively flat on the gain line.
"I think he positioned himself a bit too deep in our previous two games - probably due to the conditions and with the plan to kick the ball into the corners behind the opponents.
"My message to him was that he should make a difference on attack, because it's a natural gift he possesses. He has to get the backline going," said Meyer.
The clash on Saturday kicks off at 16:30 (SA time) on Saturday.Teams:England:
