Consolidating a few more news stories that have surfaced over the last few days, it appears that South Africa’s local flyhalf pool has been diminished even further as three more Bok-capped pivots head overseas.
Johan Goosen has finally put pen to paper on a three-year deal that will see him swap the Cheetahs for somewhat more glamorous Parisian side Racing Metro. Joining him in France will be former Bok and Stormers pivot Peter Grant, who is joining newly promoted club La Rochelle.
Lions man Elton Jantjies is also ff – joining NTT in Japan for the Currie Cup season. He will presumably be back for Super Rugby next year, but has already seen provincial team mate Marnitz Boshoff grab his starting spot and his place in the extended Bok group, so any real motivation for Jantjies to return is hard to comprehend at this point.
This is, of course, in addition to Frans Steyn, whose future Bok prospects appear non existent given recent developments.Tweet
