Something old, something new for Meyer

Heyneke Meyer’s 36-man Springbok squad, named on Saturday night for the upcoming June international season, features 7 uncapped players as well as a fair few old hands from days gone bye.

S’bura Sithole – in a rare piece of positive news for beleaguered Sharks fans – made the final cut as one of theuncapped group, also comprising Damian de Allende, Lood de Jager, Cornall Hendricks, Oupa Mohoje, Marcell van der Merwe and Callie Visagie.

The last-named will likely play a backup role to Bismarck du Plessis and Schalk Brits, with the Saracens hooker earning a recall to the test fray after another brilliant season up North. Schalk Burger and Victor Matfield predictably return after spells in the wilderness, while Mayer has raised eyebrows by including former Bulls Zane Kirchner and Gurthro Steenkamp, along with some more “expected” foreigners in Bakkies Botha, Fourie du Preez, Bryan Habana, Francois Louw and Ruan Pienaar.

Meyer has yet to announce his captain. Meanwhile, it has emerged that de Allende is an injury doubt following Saturday’s brusing derby between the Sharks and the Stormers.
