Springbok prop Vincent Koch maybe on his way back and will be joining the Bulls after returning from England in June.
We have heard the rumors that Rassie Erasmus is on a mission to get certain overseas players back in SA so that they can form part of his plans to build the Springboks up again and to be competitive in 2019 World Cup.
Sources have confirm with All out Rugby that the 27-year old prop has agreed to cut his stint at Saracens short and move back home.
This is not just good news for the Springboks but also for the Bulls who has been struggling with quality props the past few years.
Erasmus is also set to speak to Vermeulen, JP Pietersen, Jan Serfontein, Frans Steyn, Bismarck du Plessis, Juan de Jogh, Willie le Roux and Faf de Klerk.
Erasmus was at Twickenham on Saturday, scouting England’s performance against Wales in preparation for a three-Test tour to South Africa by the Roses in June.
It is understood that Erasmus is eager to recall key overseas-based players who have not accrued the minimum of 30 Test caps required to be eligible for Springbok selection.
