Conrad Jantjes, Percy Montgomery, Jean de Villiers, Ricky Januarie, Luke Watson, Schalk Burger, Andries Bekker and Brian Mujati will arrive at WP Rugby’s High Performance Centre in Bellville following their three month stint with the National team, today.
Vodacom WP coach Allister Coetzee confirmed that he had been given the go-ahead by national convenor of selectors Peter Jooste to field all his Springboks.
WP’s official website reports that Province will welcome back the experience that comes with the returning professionals, after a disappointing loss against the Blue Bulls at Loftus on Friday night. The Blue and White Hoops, who were fielding a string of under 21 players, managed to stay in the game gallantly for 65 minutes. But playing with 14 men for 20 minutes due to two sin-bins, eventually cost Vodacom WP the game.
Vodacom WP will travel to Bloemfontein to face defending Absa Currie Cup Champions the Free State Cheetahs at Vodacom Park on Saturday.
In addition to the Springboks, flyhalf Peter Grant and wing Sireli Naqelevuki are also available for selection this week.
Vodacom WP’s match 22 will be announced on Wednesday.Tweet
