James, who wore the Springbok jersey on 42 occasions, feels that three of the current Super Rugby flyhalves can all hold their own in the starting line-up, while the youngest of the quartet should play off the off the bench.
Handre Pollard seems to be Erasmus’ preferred pivot while Elton Jantjies played second fiddle during the June international season. Jantjies got his time in the spotlight in the dead rubber Test at Newlands but did himself no favours with performance.
James adds that Sharks flyhalf Robert du Preez has what it takes to get a chance at starting for the Springboks while 20-year-old Damian Willemse is James’ ideal candidate to play as the backup when he is fully fit.
