Cape Town - While speculation mounts that JP Pietersen will
be fast-tracked straight into the Springbok starting line-up for the first
match of their European tour against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday, former Bok
wing favourite Breyton Paulse cautions against tampering immediately with the
status quo in the back three.
“It’s a tough decision for Heyneke (Meyer). I just think the
current back three has worked well lately.
"I think that right wing is Willie’s best position; he can
express himself a bit more.
"You know, he’s seldom given me the impression that he does
lots of things wrong; perhaps people just want a fullback to look more
"I’d like to see him get another start at No 10 some time on
this tour, perhaps against Scotland in the middle game.
"He is playing with
confidence, and behind a big, solid Bok pack he should get go-forward ball."
