Lambie to play Flyhalf for the year end tour

Now that Goosen has injured his knee ligaments, he is either out for 6 months or 6 weeks pending the outcome if surgery is required.
The other 2 options are Earl Janjties and nnnooooooooooooo! Morne.
Lambie should have been playing at the start of the season.
As for Goosen, The guy is not built for Superxv or test match rugby yet. He needs a conditioning program to bulk up so that he can be more built to make tackles. The tackle he made on Sam Whitelock was technically sound and he did pull him down but he just does not have a combination of weight and power to stop him before the line. Incidently it appears he was not injured in this tackle, but right at the start of the game
When he got injured earlier in the year and damaged his shoulder it was when a chiefs player tackled him when making a tackle. It looked routine and I dont think a player like Jean Devilliers would have got injured. When Jean Devillier and Percy Montgomery started at international level they were also both to thin but later bulked up and this helped to prevent the injuries.
Goosen is our best flyhalf by far, and if he can overcome his injury problems I think he has the potential to be as good as Carter.
This is some of his moments
