Scarra joins Bok tour

Western Province hooker Scarra Ntubeni has been summoned to join the Springbok tour group in London, following the decision to send Lions counterpart Robbie Coetzee back to South Africa.

Coetzee, according to a SARU press release, has been having trouble with a pinched nerve in his neck and another flare up of this injury has ruled him out of further participation in the tour. Ntubeni, who is already in London having played in yesterday’s festival game against Saracens, will join the squad today as third hooker behind Bismarck du Plessis and Adriaan Strauss.

Meanwhile, the Boks and their coach will be licking their wounds somewhat, after a poor performance in Dublin that saw them succumb to Six Nations champions Ireland to the tune of 29-15. While Heyneke Meyer ponders exactly who to bring in to replace his struggling starters at scrumhalf and fullback, at least at flyhalf he has a good option: reports indicate he may finally give Pat Lambie another run in the number 10 jersey.

Given the horror show produced by Francois Hougaard in Dublin, I wonder if Meyer is now starting to rue the decision to let the Rory Kockott ship sail all the way into the French test side.
