Schalk Brits who thought he retired from rugby after winning another Premiership Title with his English club Saracens have been called up to the Bok camp.
Brits bring s not just a world of experience to the squad but has also been on form this year art Saracens.
“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.
