Squad named for Toulon clash

The Sharks have named a 26-man squad for the upcoming pre-season fixture against Toulon in France, without too many major surprises.

A number of players who might otherwise have been expected to tour have been left out; none of Jannie du Plessis, Thomas du Toit or Willem Alberts, for instance, will make the trip but given that all three underwent rehabilitation for various ailments during the off-season, it’s perhaps to be expected that they’d not quite be match fit at this stage. Alberts’s omission, though, is somewhat of a blow since we believed he was well on the way to recovery; conservative management seems to be the name of the game, though. Etienne Oosthuizen looks set to provide loose forward cover.

Paul Perez, as was widely predicted over the weekend, has also been included in the team, at the expense of another new signing, Jack Wilson. Neither Jaco van Tonder nor Lionel Cronje has been included as fullback cover, a strong sign that the coaches aren’t really looking beyond SP Marais for the number 15 jersey at this stage.

The group includes 12 capped Springboks, with two further English internationals in Mouritz Botha and Matt Stevens. Perez, of course, has national colours for Sevens, as do S’bura Sithole and Tera Mtembu.
