Bok boost for Currie Cup

A number of fringe players from the Springboks squad have been released to their provinces for Currie Cup duty this weekend.

Franco van der Merwe and Jean de Jongh, neither of whom joined the Boks on tour, have nonetheless been “re-released” for duty, meaning they remain available to the Lions and Western Province respectively for this weekend’s games. Of the players that did tour, only Marcell Coetzee (Sharks), Bjorn Basson (Blue Bulls) and Piet van Zyl (Cheetahs) will be allowed game time.

In the case of Van Zyl, his exclusion amounts to a dropping from the squad, since Fourie du Preez is once more available to the Boks. It’s thus unlikely that van Zyl’s name will be called when the squad for the remaining home tests in the Rugby Championship is named on Sunday. The balance of the tour group will assemble in Cape Town on Friday ahead of that announcement; my assumption is that those released this week should probably expect to be available to their Currie Cup sides for the remainder of the season.
