Sunday Newspaper Rapport has reported that Rassie Erasmus has send and SOS to Duane Vermeulen to join the team ahead of the Wellington test against the All Blacks.
Vermeulen currently playing in Japan for Kubota Spears was a star player in the June internationals against England.
It seems Erasmus wants to stock up with Brink and Jean-Luc Du Preez out for the rest of the season.
The newspaper reports that Kubota coach Frans Ludeke is willing to release Vermeulen if he receives a formal request from SA Rugby.
With a bye this week the Springboks will want to hit back in two weeks against the Aussies in Brisbane before facing the All Blacks in Wellington.
