Coenie OOSTHIUZEN

The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

There was a time when Oosthuizen was con­sid­ered the next big thing in South African rugby, let alone among the front-rankers. Un­for­tu­nately, he’s been shifted back and forth be­tween loose­head and tight­head so of­ten, that he’s never re­ally be­come a spe­cial­ist in ei­ther po­si­tion. It’s one thing scrum­ming well at Su­per Rugby level and quite an­other do­ing the job in Test match rugby, and again he’ll be un­der the spot­light. That is, if he gets a chance.
