News from the Bok camp – Updated with PSdT news

There are a few news titbits going around from within the Bok camp and I thought it a good idea to summarise them into one article, so here goes.

Firstly, it was announced yesterday afternoon that coach Heyneke Meyer has called up Flip van der Merwe to cover the second row after the injury to Victor Matfield. Matfield is set to miss this weekend’s action, but there is no further news at this stage regarding the seriousness of his injury.

Speaking of injury, Meyer was also quoted as saying that Marcell Coetzee may miss this weekend’s match. Details on his injury is also limited, with the news only mentioning that his ligaments are intact. We have seen him tweet that it was merely a lammie, but we still cannot be sure if he will start this weekend.

Looking forward to the All Black game, a decision will have to be made on who will lead the team. Meyer said that a decision would be released later on Tuesday, but I can guarantee that it will not be Jean de Villiers.

Jean played 60 minutes for Western Province against the Pumas this weekend, and will again be in the Province midfield this weekend, when they face the Kings. De Villiers has requested to play the full game but WP coach John Dobson has said that his involvement will again be limited to 60 minutes.

UPDATE – Piet-Steph du Toit also joined the Springbok camp yesterday. The second row took a knock last weekend when Victor Matfield lasted only a few minutes on the park, but news of Flip and Piet-Steph joining the team does make matters better. We are not sure exactly how du Toit is doing or how close he is to being involved, but the fact that he is with the squad is an indication that he will be in the reckoning come World Cup squad time.

That’s it for now, once we have that captain announcement, I will update you.
