The Vodacom Bulls have announced a 27-man squad for their four-match tour of Australasia.
The group includes 12 capped Springboks, along with Blitzboks duo Dylan Sage and Rosko Specman.
The inclusion of Warrick Gelant will come as a welcome return after the fullback had to withdraw from their match against the Crusaders last week due to illness.
The four-week tour will see the Bulls take on the Rebels and Brumbies in Australia first up, before heading to New Zealand where they will face the Blues and Highlanders respectively.
Coach Pote Human’s side is currently second on the log in the South African conference, one point behind the Sharks, who have played one game more.
Forwards – Schalk Brits, Trevor Nyakane, Duane Vermuelen, Simphiwe Matanzima, Lizo Gqoboka, Conraad van Vuuren, Wiehahn Herbst, Johan Grobbelaar, Jaco Visagie, Jannes Kirsten, Hanro Liebenberg, RG Snyman, Paul Schoeman, Marco van Staden, Jason Jenkins.
Backs – Burger Odendaal, Handrè Pollard, Rosko Specman, Manie Libbok, Johnny Kotze, Dylan Sage, Divan Rossouw, André Warner, Ivan van Zyl, Warrick Gelant, Embrose Papier, Cornal Hendricks.
