Springbok and Lions centre Jaque Fourie is set to make his comeback after a stomach injury when the Lions meet the Blue Bulls at Loftus Versfeld in a Vodacom Cup quarter-final next weekend.

The South African Rugby Union has given its blessing and go-ahead for Fourie to be allowed to play in the Vodacom play-offs, according to a report on News24.

The Bok midfielder hasn’t played any rugby this year and is reaching full fitness.

Lions coach Hugo van As has requested that Fourie joins the Super 14 team in Australia, but it doesn’t make sense throwing the centre in at the deep end.

Fourie said on Tuesday that he would rather play two or three Vodacom Cup matches and be ready to play Super 14 when the Lions return from Australia.

“The rest has done wonders for my rugby appetite and body and I can’t wait to get back onto the field,” he said.

“I don’t know what Van As’ plans are, if he wants me to start or play off the bench,” says Fourie.

A fully fit Fourie can boost the Lions Vodacom Cup chances. When fit, he is one of the best centres in the world and the timing is perfect to get him match-fit, not only for the tail of the Super 14, but for national duty in time for the incoming tours.

  • Nel is right up there, of course. Schalk Burger gets up my nose a lot sometimes. I don’t like Danie Rossouw much. Hard to pick just one

  • Mossie is essential to the Bok’s future… world class…

    Least fav non-Sharks player #46 (although I now more feel sorry for him being so brainwashed my his father, than dislike)…

    Bolla ranks up there too…
