Dyantyi needs to develop properly
EXCLUSIVE: Aphiwe Dyantyi's sublime Super Rugby performances has numerous people calling for the 23-year-old to become a Springbok sooner rather than later but those calls are premature.
The chat about the young wing happens in the 19th minute!
The wing had burst onto the Super Rugby scene by running 209 metres from 22 carries, beating 14 defenders in the process and scoring three tries in the Lions' two matches. Coupled with that, he was asked to make 10 tackles and missed none.
There is no doubt that the young man is a naturally gifted player but he definitely needs time to establish himself properly before being thrown into the international arena.
"He is playing unbelievable rugby and has had 2 blinders. Let's take what he has - he has a decent foundation - go work on his core skills, work on his weaknesses and build a proper product before we try to break him down on the international stage," Morgan Newman said.
Former Stormers and Stade Francais lock Anton van Zyl believes there is something special about the young man.
"The only thing in rugby that you cannot substitute is speed and he seems to have more than enough of it. He has a clever knack of [running] exceptional lines. There is always a danger of a quick wing to try and go around the outside but he seems to bring it back inside at the perfect time.
