Lambie at flyhalf

The Sharks have selected Lambie as the flyhalf this weekend and I assume he would also play in that position in the CC semis and should the Sharks go through to the final - in the final as well.. Whereas it is very likely that Meyer requested that the move be made , it most probably has been made to see what he can produce and on that basis is mot likely a pointer that Meyer wants to use him as a flyhalf in the upcoming tour. There are other indicators as well - especially bearing in mind the comments of Pienaar as published - the latter should know the whisperings in the squad and would not have expressed a totally unfounded opinion in the media.
Insofar as the other returning Springboks are concerned - there are no Springboks other than Lambie in the starting line up - a number of them is on the bench though. If it was not intentional - why was an exception made in respect of Lambie and that in the flyhalf position?
The other interesting selection is Jordaan - he seems to be solid as no 13 - if there was any chance of Pietersen being moved to 13 - the selection of him in that position would have been requested by Meyer. However, the Sharks cannot do without Jordaan - he is just too good to be left out.
