RE: Can Pat Lambie kick up and unders?

I do not like the way our best possesion is often handed over to the opposition- however if the game plan it to kick up and unders, as incorrect as it is, a player should be able to do them.
If the game plan is to knock the ball on everytime, then a player like Jannie Duplessis is the player to implement the plan.
I think the up and unders from Lambie todays were useless. An Up and under is a valid tactic, but only when played at the right time. Not the overuse, and not when it is top quality possesion.
Although Morne Steyn and Early Jantjies will typically make the same mess of the up and under.
I have not played rugby in over 10 years, and I think I could have kicked better up and unders than Lambie did in the match yesterday.
I reckon that Morne Steyn is going to get more game time against England. It is the Bulls way, and Meyer needs players that understand the Bulls pattern of play- do not play any rugby unless in the opposition 22. Boring and parrasitic to try play of opposition errrors.
Personally, I would prefer John Plumtree to take over. At least our Rugby would be entertaining. Yesterdays game was rubbish. The Aus vs Eng game was excellant in comparison
