Trevor pulled back from the wilderness

Cheetahs prop Trevor Nyakane has been summoned back off the naughty step to which Heyneke Meyer consigned him after last year’s June international series.

The likable front ranker, who was dropped from the Bok squad ahead of the 2013 Rugby Championship due to disciplinary issues, has been asked to join the squad in Durban this week as a 37th member, although it’s not quite clear at this stage whether he’ll be considered as a player.

“Trevor is a player who we identified last year already as someone who can play at the highest level,” according to Meyer.

“He’s currently not the first-choice in his position for the Cheetahs and we’re thankful that they granted us this opportunity to pull Trevor into the squad.

“As the Cheetahs are on a break from Super Rugby at the moment, we want to use this opportunity to work with Trevor, keep him up to date with our playing structures and, most importantly, spend time on his conditioning and other aspects considering the Springbok ethos.”

The Boks have also revealed that Flip van der Merwe will be given the weekend off to attend his brother’s wedding. This presumably implies a test debut for Lood de Jager against Wales on Saturday.
