Peter Grant for Boks Flyhalf- in the 4 nations

I heard Louis Koen say that Peter Grant has all the attributes for Heineken Meyers type of flyhalf to meet the game plan. Is this adios Morne?
The only major weakness I see in his game is his touch finders. He cant kick ver far out of hand.
However with Ruan Piennaar at scrum falf and Frans Steyns rock launcher boot-this could be overcome. Frans Steyn could play flyhalf for Lineouts and scrums in our 22 area.
His pole kicking has been over the last few seasons allmost as good as Morne, and actually better this year than Morne.
I have not seen much of his up and unders- ala bulls/bok style for kick and chases but Mornes have been poor as of late anyway so cant really do any worse.
Peter Grant could also make the next world cup.
I think Morne should be on the bench, with Lambie at fullback to also offer cover at Flyhalf. Aplon on the bench to cover wing and fullback.
In general I think Hieneken Meyer must have some regrets as we are going into the 4 nations with an unsettled backline- as we need a better flyhalf. The 3rd test would have been a good oppertunity- must most people do not see Earl Jantjies as the future.
