Wallabies formulating a plan for Bok speedster
RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIP SPOTLIGHT: Springbok wing Aphiwe Dyantyi could find it tough out wide against the Wallabies in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.
The 24-year-old has been a constant threat out wide with his speed for the Boks this season. He scored two tries in the Springboks’ famous 36-34 win over the All Blacks in Round Three of the Rugby Championship.
It’s for this reason the Wallabies will aim to limit his time and space at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
“He’s been impressive,” said Wallaby wing Marika Koroibete.
“This week we are going to work on something to stop him from scoring tries.
“He’s a really exciting player for them.”
Koroibete made his first Test start for the Wallabies 12 months ago in Bloemfontein and it was a memorable occasion for the big wing as he scored two tries in a 27-27 draw.
The 26-year-old will be looking to replicate some of that form in Port Elizabeth.
“I played my first start here [in South Africa] and since then I have been in the starting XV and playing more with the boys.
“It’s given me confidence, knowing each other’s game.
“The last couple of weeks have been tough but I’m going to play my best and do my best for the team.”
