Allister Coetzee has released four members of his 31-man springbok squad to play for the SA A-Team in Bloemfontein this weekend.

The four, flyhalf Garth April, hooker Scarra Ntumbeni, flanker Sikombuze Notshe and scrumhalf Nic Groom are all expected to play key roles for Johan Ackermann’s side against the visiting England Saxons, before rejoining the Springboks on Sunday ahead of the second test against Ireland.

The Bok team for the first test (at Newlands) will be announced on Thursday.

  • A bit surprised that Garth is going seeing Eltons still not 100% but on the plus side probably get some quality game time.

  • Hmm interesting. Think its risky playing Janjies- fractures dont heal that quickly. I would have preferred Scarra to Mbonambi. Notshe and Groom make sense. A lot of journalists saying the team will be : Beast, Strauss, Malherbe, Eben, Lood, Louw, Kolisi, Vermuelen, Faf, Lambie, Mvovo, De Allende, Mapoe, JPP, LeRoux. Bench: Nyakane, Mbonambi, Redelinghuis, PSDT, Whiteley, Paige, Kriel, Combrinck

  • @Zibbie (Comment 2) : Well if the reports from some who watched the training session are accurate, sounds like Mapoe spent the majority of the time at 13. Grats on star :)

  • I would love to see Jantjies at 10 and Lambie at 12 at some stage. Doubt that we will but it could be a fantastic combo along with Faf at 9 and Mapoe at 13. Two great distributors at 10 and 12 and a hard running 13 who has an eye for a gap.

  • @The hound (Comment 14) : Bit of a biased call that. PSDT has been probably the best lock in Super rugby. Eben possibly not at his best but he is usually better for the Boks than his provincial form. Same goes for Lood. Lets see how Lewies does against the Saxons.
