Sharks scrumhalf Charl McLeod has been rewarded for his utterly outstanding domestic form this season by being called up to the Springbok tour squad. Team mate Odwa Ndungane and Lions hooker Bandise Maku have also been summoned to return the tour party to 30 players, following the loss of Bryan Habana, Bjorn Basson and Chilliboy Rallepele.
Talking of the call-ups, Bok coach Peter de Villiers had the following to say: “I called the players to let them know the good news and they’re all really excited to be joining us,” said de Villiers. “I considered calling them in this week but with all the other disruptions I thought it’d be better to focus as much as we could on what is a very important Test against Scotland.
“They can start with us fresh on Monday morning at the beginning of a new Test week.”
Sharksworld would like to wish Odwa and Charl all the best and extend our warmest congratulations to both!Tweet
