Rugby Championship

Lambie cleared, set for Bok return

2016-09-26 13:52

Cape Town - The news coming out of Johannesburg on Monday was that Springbok flyhalf Pat Lambie has been cleared to play in this weekend's Rugby Championship clash against Australia at Loftus Versfeld. 

And, furthermore, Bok coach Allister Coetzee has confirmed that the flyhalf will be a part of the plans for the match, according to SARugbymag. 

Whether that means a starting role or a place on the bench for Lambie is not clear at this stage, and that will only be known when the Bok team is announced at 13:00 on Thursday. 

Lambie was knocked out cold and concussed on June 11 against Ireland at Newlands - the last time he played for the Boks. 

Since then, he has played just 20 minutes of competitive rugby for the Sharks when they took on the EP Kings in Durban two weekends ago. 

Lambie's return could see Elton Jantjies, the current Bok No 10, lose his place.
