It is a fact that the absence of Willie Le Roux will be missed by Rassie Erasmus and the team but it seems that Erasmus have already found his replacement for the Aussies test next week in PE.
The Springbok coach have requested Province head coach John Dobson to play Willemse at fullback this weekend when the Cape side host Griquas.
Firstly it is good to see that coaches like Dobson do try and accommodate the national coach in these request. Dobson had no reason to move Leyds to the bench as the Springbok have been brilliant so far for Province in the Currie Cup.
Erasmus have a few options when looking on who to replace Le Roux for the Aussie test but there are some feeling to give Willemse a proper run.
Willlemse will run out with the number 15 on his back but as Dobson explained Willemse will take a lot of ball at first receiver as well in the clash.
Willemse is mostly regarded as a number ten but played for Province at fullback last year in the Currie Cup as well and in the final.
This may as well be Willemse trial match for next weekend test against the Aussies.
