Du Preez gets Bok call-up

Sharks flank Jean-Luc du Preez has been called up to the Springbok squad ahead of their training camp in Plettenberg Bay.

The 21-year old, who made his Bok debut last November against Wales in Cardiff, was earlier in the week included in the South Africa A squad for the forthcoming two-match series against the French Barbarians. However, he will now join up with the rest of the Springbok squad members when the group assembles on Monday in Plettenberg Bay, as an additional loose forward.

The Boks will spend a week in Plettenberg Bay to prepare for the series against France, which kicks off with the first Test in Pretoria on 10 June.
