Last year it looked like Nkosi and Dyantyi were establishing themselves in the role. But theYE tour was not good for Dyantyi and his early Super form looks poor......and Nkosi likewise has looked toothless.
So where do we go? In Dyantyi's case he relied heavily on his step and regathering chip kicks, both tactics are now being anticipated. And as we saw in his chase with Farrell the top end is not extraordinary. He is also not secure under the high ball....which tends to be tough on left wings. He may not be the answer.
Nkosi has been fairly solid without any obvious flaws...but without muchof an x factor.
There are a host of other options who have similar styles Mapimpi and others. Nobody really convinces.
But there are two other options Duhan van der Merwe, who looks the business but frankly hasn't had enough exposure....and Speckman, the guy who looks most likely to score a try.
