Looking to Lambie

Some developments on the flyhalf front. This is becoming a daily event! Hugh-Reece Edwards has confirmed in an interview that Pat Lambie will be given a chance to play flyhalf during the upcoming friendly series between the Sharks, Stormers and Western Force in Cape Town.

Recent info would suggest that Glen Jackson is now very unlikely to join the Sharks, with the coaching staff following the (to my mind) sensible route of backing the guys already in the squad. Steve Meyer remains very much in the picture, but for now, it’s Monty Dumond and Lambie who’ll be tested in the number 10 jersey.

The 19-year-old made his name playing flyhalf for Michaelhouse at age-group level, before being moved to fullback in his standard 9 year. Guy Cronjé was preferred at pivot in that team. The following year, Lambie remained at fullback, having made the position his own. He once again excelled for the Sharks under 21 side last year in the number 15 jersey and proved an astute reader of the game, not to mention a deadly place-kicker.

In his only senior Sharks appearance, he come off the bench to fill in at outside centre against the Leopards and showed a promising ability to break the line. Reece-Edwards feels that he has all the necessary attributes to make a successful return to flyhalf, not least of which is the mature head on his shoulders.

My feeling is that in Dumond, Lambie and hopefully Meyer, the Sharks should have enough flyhalf options to get us through the Super 14 without having to force Ruan Pienaar to do anything he doesn’t want to do. Although I’m sure Lambie will emerge as our most promising newcomer this year, don’t be too surprised if Dumond is the guy emerging with the gong labelled “Most Improved”.
