Willie Le Roux could slot into Flyhalf when necessary

Willie le Roux is happy to perform at first receiver when required.


More than that, the Boks also have no specialist flyhalf cover on the bench so if Handre Pollard was to go down injured or find himself in the sin bin for 10 minutes for whatever reason, then coach Rassie Erasmus may instruct Le Roux to take over the flyhalf duties. 

Frans Steyn is the other option, but he is starting on the bench. 


“Everybody’s got their jobs to do,” Le Roux told media on Thursday.

Sometimes I find myself at first receiver, and then I take over. Me and Handre (Pollard) have a good understanding – sometimes I’m at centre, sometimes I’m out on the wing.

Sometimes I don’t know where I find myself, but I try to be everywhere all the time.”


With 56 Test caps to his name, Le Roux was a part of the squad that made it to the semi-finals of the 2015 World Cup in England.
