Cape Town - Former Springbok wing Akona Ndungane believes that Cheslin Kolbe should have been given the No 14 jersey against the All Blacks in Wellington on Saturday.

Kolbe made his debut last weekend against the Wallabies in Brisbane when he came off the bench in the first half to replace the injured Makazole Mapimpi.

Mapimpi has since returned to South Africa with an injured knee, meaning that coach Rassie Erasmus was forced into finding a new right wing for this weekend.

While Kolbe was the logical choice, Erasmus has instead moved Jesse Kriel to right wing while Lukhanyo Am comes in at outside centre.

Ndungane, meanwhile, played 11 Test matches for the Boks and was a member of the 2007 World Cup-winning squad.
