Boks back future stars

Heyneke Meyer has invited three young players, who have performed well on this year’s Currie Cup stage, to train with his squad in Cape Town this week.

It’s the sort of move that has been done in the past – with youngsters given a taste of the “Bok experience” without actually receiving formal call ups. The lucky three this time around are Western Province number 8 Nizaam Carr, team mate and winger Seabelo Senatla and Kings loosehead Lizo Gqoboka.

While there’s no doubt that some good talent identification has taken place here, with only a blind man able to ignore the exploits of Carr and Senatla in particular, the real challenge ahead of the Bok management is to ensure that this exercise actually bears fruit and that all three of the identified players go on to make meaningful contributions at test level in years to come.

Many players have benefited from this sort of “young gun” treatment in the past. I battle to think of too many, though, that have gone on to become regular test players.
