Jake White has announced a host of current and former Springboks in his 39-man squad for the 2014 Super Rugby season, kicking off against the Bulls on Saturday.
The squad sees the return of Tonderai Chavhanga, who made his Springbok debut in 2005 when he scored six tries against Uruguay in East London before heading abroad and joining Newport Gwent Dragons.
The squad also features the young talents of Tyler Fisher and Andre Esterhuizen, who both had promising performances in the 23-15 loss to the Saracens in a warm-up friendly.
