Springboks Call on Experienced Brits

International Rugby: South Africa v Wales Preview

Schalk Brits has been added to the Springbok squad joining the group in Bloemfontein ahead of the second Test against England.

Rassie Erasmus, the Director of Rugby at SA Rugby, believes that Brits can play a similar role in the current Springbok setup such as experienced players Duane Vermeulen and Willie le Roux.
“We are busy with building experience, continuity and capacity towards the Rugby World Cup, so we want our young players rubbing shoulders with experienced players such as Duane, Vermeulen, and Willie le Roux,” explained Erasmus.
“I want Schalk to perform a similar role, because he has extensive inside knowledge and plenty of experience from playing for Saracens in the English and European conditions. It’s a great way for our younger guys to learn the trade of international rugby from these guys.”
The Springbok team to face England in the second Test in Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein will be named on Thursday.
