Friday Funnies - CJ van der Linde shows us why he's not a scrumhalf

Friday Funnies - CJ shows us why he's not a scrumhalf

Cheetahs and Springbok prop CJ Van Der Linde shows us all this fine example of why props are props, and scrum halfs are scrum halfs.

Despite some of the bigger boys having great hidden talents, and on occasion having absolute blinders, such as John Afoa a few weeks back, clearing from the back of a ruck under pressure is clearly something CJ isn't too good at.

He's a talented guy who's a World Cup winner and at times has come up with some classics, including his incredible tries against the Stormers and then the Bulls a week later. But, he's no number nine, as seen in this short but funny clip from a couple of weeks back in the Super 14.

The look on his face said it all.
