‘I would start Lambie for Boks’

JOHN MITCHELL, writing on the new Vodacom Rugby Portal, compares Pat Lambie to Handré Pollard and explains why the Sharks No 10 would be his first choice.

One of the features I most enjoy about the Vodacom Rugby App is the Player vs Player comparison. Statistically, there is not much separating flyhalves Pat Lambie and Handré Pollard in several categories after three rounds of Vodacom Super Rugby.

Lambie has registered 55 points to Pollard’s 43. The former has been successful with 83% of his kicks at goal (19 out of 23) and the latter 78% (14 out of 18), with Lambie kicking 31 times out of hand and Pollard 30. In my book, however, Lambie's tactical kicking has been more accurate than Pollard's so far this season, and the Sharks pivot also boasts a better exit kick.
