**You don’t really expect wings to do much with the ball in the middle of a storm. With handling errors rising with every pass made, the chances of the ball making it to the wing are low. Their role in such circumstances is largely defensive.**\n\nBut Duhan van der Merwe doesn’t seem to be affected by weather. It may be that his hair is so well styled that water simply runs off him, or that he is so powerful, that rain is too scared to land. Either way, his opening try against the Scarlets looked like it was scored in early May, not mid-February.\n\nIn full flight there is no better finisher in the Guinness PRO14 and we’re not just talking straight 20-metre run-ins. We’re talking three steps, a fend and an amount of weaving that we haven’t witnessed since the end of the Industrial Revolution. He’s eligible for Scotland soon and he’ll go straight into the starting 15, without doubt. Well played, Duhan.
