Apprentice players – Yay or Nay?

The All Blacks have announced that Ardie Savea, a young and highly rated flanker, will tour with the team on the End of Year Tour, as an ‘apprentice’ player, to gain experience on how things go on tour and to benefit from training with the senior players.

Should the Springboks take a leaf out of the All Blacks booklet and do something similar?

How would you feel if a player like Cheslin Kolbe got called on to tour with the Springboks, as he is in the long term plans of the coach. I know this has been done to a certain extent when training squads have been announced, but not to the point of travelling with the team.

What do you think? If we do choose a player or two to travel with, who should it be?

I would have liked this to have implemented last year to allow the likes of Jan Serfontein and Pieter-Steph du Toit to tour with the team.
