Springbok coach Peter de Villiers and Manager of national teams Andy Marinos will sit down with the relevant provincial unions early next week to discuss the availability of the Springboks for their unions in the Currie Cup competition.
Rugby 365 reports that with a huge match between the Blue Bulls and the Sharks in Durban next Saturday, the two log leaders in the Currie Cup are anxious to get as many of their players cleared for the match.
“We’ve had a look at the all the players in the squad,” said convener of selectors Peter Jooste on Saturday, “and most of them will be cleared. There are a few, however, who need a rest.”
He gave the assurance that the talks with the unions would be completed in time for them to select available players for next weekend’s matches.
The Blue Bulls will be hoping that Fourie du Preez, Pierre Spies, Victor Matfield and Danie Rossouw will be available for the crunch game against the Sharks, who in turn will hope that Ruan Pienaar, Odwa Ndungane, Adi Jacobs, Beast Mtwarira, Bismarck du Plessis and Jannie du Plessis will be released.Tweet
