Ebersohn gets the call

Cheetahs centre Robert Ebersohn has been called up to the Springbok squad. He is there as a result of injuries to Jean de Villiers, JJ Engelbrecht and Juan de Jongh. Ebersohn joins the Springbok squad this morning.

Even though he joins the squad, it is only precautionary and his involvement will be limited to covering any injuries to the midfield, should said injured players not recover.

De Villiers picked up a hamstring strain in the Stormers win over the Kings on the weekend. JJ Engelbrecht to a knock to his quad and de Jongh has been out for a while with a fractured finger. None of these players trained on Monday.

Joining the above spectators was Pierre Spies, who has a tight groin, Francois Louw, who has a quad strain and Pieter-Steph du Toit, who has a sternum problem.

At this stage the only fit centre is Jan Serfontein, who is in line to make his Springbok debut. If there was any doubt about his position in the squad, the injuries have certainly cleared that up.

With Jean de Villiers doubtful, Heyneke Meyer’s next problem becomes selecting a captain. He mentioned that a few players are available to lead the team. Adriaan Strauss, being vice-captain, jumps to mind, but there are two more names to be thrown in the hat.

Pierre Spies has led his Bulls team with great effect while Francois Louw has been the captain of Bath, so it really is a three horse race.
