• Boshoff, Paige to join Boks

    Marnitz Boshoff and Rudy Paige have been called up to the Springbok squad for the last week of their tour.

    The Lions flyhalf and Bulls scrumhalf will provide specialist cover in those positions as the Boks’ overseas-based players – including Jano Vermaak, Morné Steyn and Johan Goosen – are not available for the match against Wales as it falls outside the Test window.

    'Marnitz was part of our squad earlier in the season and made his Test debut in June, while Rudy has impressed during the latter part of the Currie Cup and also spent a week at our training camp in Stellenbosch, so he is up to speed with our structures,' said Bok coach Heyneke Meyer.
