Surely something that will not sit very nice with supporters is the fact that Springbok coach Allister Coetzee have told the media that in Damien De Allende he has what Rohan Janse van Rensburg offers him.
Coetzee defended his midfielders following a difficult June Test series against Ireland and the ongoing Rugby Championship campaign.
“I’m happy with the centres we have at the moment,” Coetzee told SA Rugby Magazine.
“Juan de Jongh has brought a lot of energy to that position. Jesse Kriel defended well in that recent game against Australia.
Coetzee addressed the calls to select Lions number 12 Rohan Janse van Rensburg, who had an incredible season with the Johannesburg outfit.
“Rohan enjoyed a wonderful Super Rugby competition with the Lions, and is probably on the radar. But I don’t get emotional when I assess players. I look at the stats. And if you consider what Rohan can do (breaking the gain-line), we have that in Damian at the moment,” he said.
