Meisiekind and Kanko are going to Japan after Super Rugby…
SA Rugby website reports that both have signed on for an undisclosed Japanese club at a salary of R500K per MONTH.
Both apparently told Heyneke Meyer that they’d be off to Japan after the Super Rugby tournament. It is unclear whether they will play a role in Castle Rugby Championship.
Although one is bound to hear the cries of joy out of Cape Town, you have to start getting worried at the way we’re bleeding players off to overseas, especially when they are incumbent Boks. There is not really all that much in the line of up and coming talent for Heyneke to use yet… it looks like we’re in transition rather than able to bring in great players to replace these guys immediately.
