Well some logic deduced from the actions of the WP management etc. would indicate to the following:
1. AC rates Jantjies very highly.
2. AC rated Catrakilis not as high as others on the province payroll.
3. All the others are injured and there has been a Flyhalf crisis in the past.
4. Catrakilis wants to start at the top level.
Backup is always necesery, plus from the signing you can obviously deduce that Jantjies will start with Grant as backup and the others as injured anyway so not up for Debate. So no the signing is only unnecessary if you think that Catrakilis was bound to stay. But he is not, he want's to start, and even without the signing he would be behind Grant.
With all the injuries at 10 Coetzee clearly is covering his bases.

I think Cat has made a mistake, IMO. My guess is that he would have and could have shifted both pop-gun and Earl Jantjies down the order. Guess we will never know now.
Highly unlikely. Face it Cat had a good game and a good season, but he has inherent limitations. Some guys say he can work on that extra bit of pace, I don't really agree. He has vision and a trained foot, that is about it, a slower Morne steyn without the reach.
