Rugby: Kolbe could be Boks’ flyhalf in Twickenham Test against Wales

# Rugby: Rumours are winger Cheslin Kolbe could be entrusted with the Springboks’ number ten jersey when the world champions play Wales at Twickenham on the 22nd of June. The match falls outside the official Test window, meaning players based in Britain, Ireland and France won’t be available. This will keep flyhalves Handré Pollard and Manie Libbok out of contention. Kolbe was the back-up scrumhalf in the World Cup final against the All Blacks, and he and number nine Faf de Klerk both have prior experience at flyhalf.
