Matt Giteau - A tribute to an incredible flyhalf

Matt Giteau - A tribute to an incredible flyhalf


Ahead of the Tri Nations match between the Springboks and the Wallabies in Cape Town on Saturday, we’ve got this really good video tribute to one of the players that will no doubt have a huge influence on the match.

Matt Giteau is to many, the worlds best flyhalf. While comparisons and opinions abound, there’s no doubt that he’s right up there with the likes of two of the best, Carter and Hernandez.

To some, he’s better, as he possesses an amazing all round ability in that he has very few weaknesses. For a small man, he’s able to mix it up with the best, and you actually forget how small he is when you consider that he’s played in the centre, and held his own time after time.

With ball in hand, he’s the ultimate playmaker, and his lethal stepping and running ability catches defenders off balance regularly. Kicking out of hand, he has pinpoint accuracy and his goal kicking has improved significantly over the years.

He’s pretty much the complete player, and will be vital to the Wallabies chances throughout this years Tri Nations. His battle with man of the moment Morne Steyn will be fascinating to watch at Newlands on Saturday.

“Hes one of the best flyhalves in the world and it will be good to get to measure myself against him,” Steyn said of Giteau.
