In a rather predictable move, the Springboks have called up yet another aging veteran of the 2007 World Cup triumph.

According to report, Juan Smith has been summoned to join the squad as cover for the injured Victor Matfield.

Smith, who is comfortable at both flank and tight lock, will presumably only be involved for as long as Matfield’s knee injury keeps him out. It’s anticipated that one of the other 4s – Lood de Jager or Eben Etzebeth – will need to make the shift into the number 5 jersey, since Smith has never played this position.

Coach Meyer has intimated that although Stephan Lewies made a solid test debut against Scotland earlier in the year, the quality of opposition in that match was not good enough to judge whether he’s ready to step up in the Rugby Championship. I’ll not comment further on what I think of that opinion.
