There is debate about every Bok position, but wings are hardly mentioned. Nobody has much passion about the whole thing. And it's hard to drum up much enthusiasm since Habana and JP.
Of the current crop Dyantyi blows hot and and cold....but no doubt his bag of tricks is no longer novel. Not express and not very strong he relies on guile, but sometimes it backfires.
Mapimpi looks good, except when he is faced by an equivalent athlete...as he will be at the WC. There is no plan b if he is matched for pace.
Nkosi is an impressive youngster...good pace, good strength, sensible instincts....he looks the best prospect. Still there isn't a sense that he is going to make things happen, like the young Habana. Not sure why....but he isn't a 'danger man' yet.
Of course there is Kolbe, who seems too small, but is a 'danger man'. We need one player who can really shred a defence. Right now Kolbe seems one of the few....with his quick thinking and electric pace off the mark.
Then there's Lleyds, who is probably the most creative of all our wings. But his defence is feeble, even Kolbe is better. Ultimately that would cost us.
Finally there is the great white hope....Duhan van der Merwe. We need one physically imposing wing, who can be our intruder through the middle. This guy, on limited exposure, looks like the best bet for that role....pacy and hard to put away.
In all this Gerhard van der Heever is the forgotten man....but probably too old to introduce now....I hope van der Merwe doesn't go the same route.
