A meeting between Paul Goze, the president of Perpignan, and Percy Montgomery has produced an agreement which would see the Springbok fullback play one Test and then miss the next two.

Perpignan are currently in fourth place on the Top 14 and look likely to stay there, which means that they will play in the semifinals which are on 21 June.

South Africa play three Tests in June – against Wales on 7 June in Bloemfontein and on 14 June in Pretoria and then against Italy at Newlands on 21 June.

Rugby 365 reports that according to Rugbyrama the Perpignan suggestion, apparently, is that Montgomery be allowed to play for South Africa on 7 June but not on 14 June or 21 June.

The matter is to be finalised on Thursday apparently.

  • Yeah my feelings as well, but Perp have a valid issue though that he would miss four crunch club games against Auch, Toulouse, Dax and Stade Francais, and also a potential Top 14 semifinal on June 21
