Good news for Sharks fans and bad news for opposing Currie cup teams was that Tendai “the beast” Mtawarira was dropped from the Bok squad for the Tri Nations game against the All Blacks.
With the 29 man Bok squad being trimmed down to 24, Beast and BJ Botha were the players unlucky to miss the cut, the other players missing out were Jaque Fourie who is suspended anyway as well as the injured duo of Frans Steyn and Ryan Kankowski.
Here’s hoping Beast can show his form in the Currie Cup and earn himself a recall to the test team because we all know how passionate he is for the green and gold.
The 24 man Bok squad is as follows:
Backs: Gio Aplon, Juan de Jongh, Jean de Villiers, Bryan Habana, Francois Hougaard, Butch James, Ricky Januarie, Zane Kirchner, Wynand Olivier, JP Pietersen, Morne Steyn.
Forwards: Schalk Burger, Jannie du Plessis, Francois Louw, Victor Matfield, Dewald Potgieter, Chiliboy Ralepelle, Danie Rossouw, John Smit (captain), Juan Smith, Pierre Spies, Gurthrö Steenkamp, CJ van der Linde, Flip van der Merwe.Tweet
