Springboks alignment camp in Pretoria


There is some interesting names that was on the list for another of Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus alignment camps.
Social media was buzzing when they saw the names of overseas based players Marcell Coetzee, Rynardt Elstadt, Vincent Koch, Franco Mostert, Cheslin Kolbe, Cobus Reinach and Frans Steyn.
A few new local players also got on the sheet for this alignment camp in Pretoria. They are Herschel Jantjies and Kwagga Smith who many supporters over the last few weeks of Super Rugby felt they deserved a look at.
Players from the Bulls and Sharks will only join the group from next week Monday after their Super Rugby quarter final matches played over the past weekend.
Erasmus will start putting together his squad for a shorten Rugby Championship before he will announce his World Cup squad who will travel to Japan in September.
The Springboks will have a once-off test against Argentina in Pretoria before departing for the World Cup.

  1. “Alignment” – more indoctrination to forget all their ball skills and revert to stampkar / standing on the wing and watch the game go by!!! Watch the cricket canaries boys, and get your yellow shirts ready for Bafana Bafana Bok style.

  2. @Jacques Nortier: Nope – we will pack our bags before the Ireland game. I did not expect the Canaries to win one game at the CWC, but they surprised me against Afghanistan. Unfortunately Afghanistan does not participate in the Rugby World Cup!

  3. That Rassie is one shrewd character, maybe best coach we had so far – all those selections are making for one helluva powerful RWC squad.

  4. One big failure at the CWC is our Oupa squad – selecting people based on what they have done a few years ago. We must be careful not to do the same with RWC.

  5. Oh my.
    To say the inclusion of Bunny’s arch-nemesis FRANK STEYN (or is that Jake White?) isn’t a surprise/treat would be an understatement.
    Frank + Messerschmitt Willie = RFUWC Valhalla.
