Rassie Erasmus will be very happy but not as happy as I am that Faf de Klerk, Willie Le Roux Francois Louw, Vincent Koch, Cheslin Kolbe and Franco Mostert joined the squad for their for this weekend test against France.
All five players were not consider for the England test as it was outside the official international window.
The squad arrived at the hotel in Paris on Monday to start preparing for the French test.
It is a huge boost for Rassie to have these five experience players back in the fold.
The team will be announce on Thursday as they go into their second test match for this November series.
