Five players have been released from the Springbok training squad to play Currie Cup this weekend.

Warrick Gelant (fullback), Lizo Gqoboka (prop, both Vodacom Blue Bulls), Oupa Mohoje (flank), Francois Venter (centre, both Toyota Free State Cheetahs) and Dillyn Leyds (wing, DHL Western Province) will all be released on Tuesday afternoon to get game time with their respective provinces this weekend.
Following on from the news yesterday that Frans Malherbe is struggling with a neck injury, word is that he is likely to miss the entire Rugby Championship and Lions prop Ruan Dreyer has been called up to the squad. It is still unclear whether Dreyer is available to play this weekend against Argentina.


  • Thanks, Rich.

    Any thoughts on a likely Bok team?

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 4) : Sa Schools have been very poor- look disinterested on defense especially

  • Really dissapointing. Apparently there are 4 full backs in that backline.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 6) : I cant see them beating England. Wonder when last they went without a win in this series

  • @SheldonK (Comment 7) : I doubt they will either. What was the England / Wales score.

    I also dont get why they always play these games in the Cape, the weather is always gong to be dicey at this time of the year.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 8) : Wales won by 2pts but they were in control till a late England score. On basis of we the Sa Schools side are the 4th best side
