Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer today named his squad for the traditional End of Year Tour of the northern hemisphere.

The coach named 5 uncapped players in his squad as well as including 2 european based players, the uncapped players are Raymond Rhule, Jano Vermaak, Franco vd Merwe, Lionel Mapoe and Arno Botha while Schalk Britz and Guthro Steenkamp will add some much needed experience.

Bryan Habana has been excluded completely after injuring his knee early in yesterdays Currie Cup final, scans this morning revealed his injury to be a serious enough for him to sit the tour out.JP Pieterson and Chilliboy Ralepelle rejoin the Bok squad after missing the entire Rugby Championship with their respective injuries, Pietersons inclusion will surely help the coach sleep slightly easiers as having to take to the field without him and Habana would have been almost catastrophic, Francois Hougaard struggled to impress while holding the fort.

The Springbok squad will assemble in Cape Town on Wednesday and depart to the UK from Johannesburg on Saturday. They will return to South Africa on Monday, 26 November.
