Kriel excited about his move to wing and relishing contest against All Blacks wing Rieko Ioane
Springbok utility back Jesse Kriel says he is excited at the prospect of starting at wing in Saturday’s Castle Lager Rugby Championship encounter against New Zealand in Wellington. Kriel has been moved from centre to wing in place of the injured Makazole Mapimpi and Lukhanyo Am returns to start at number 13. Kriel is set to come up against All Blacks star wing Rieko Ioane and Kriel says he is aware of the danger his opposite number will pose. However Kriel says it will be important not to focus on individuals but rather on themselves and what they need to get right as a team.
