Former Sharks age-group prop Allan Dell is one of three South African forwards to feature in Scotland’s preliminary World Cup squad.

23-year old Dell, who joined Allan Solomons’ Edinburgh last year, is joined in the preliminary squad by provincial team mate (and former Cheetahs tighthead) Willem “WP” Nel. There’s also a call-up for former Lions player Josh Struass, who captained the Glasgow Warriors to a Guinness PRO12 final victory this past weekend.

Congratulations to all three players and we’ll be holding thumbs that they make the final squad; with Scotland in the same pool as the Springboks at this year’s World cup, there could be a very spicy battle indeed on the cards.

  • @Dragnipur (Comment 2) : Have often wondered how much extra woema that anthem gives them. It a rousing thing of beauty.

  • I like the Scots and I like these players, but if they don’t have a true connection with the country they’re playing for, it devalues international competition in my eyes.

    But good luck to them!
