Cape Town - Heyneke Meyer is reportedly targeting tighthead prop Brian Mujati - and Sport24 readers have given the move a ringing endorsement.

The 28-year-old Mujati, who played 12 Tests for the Boks in 2008, currently plies his trade with English club Northampton Saints, and is regarded as one of the best props in Europe.

In 2010 Mujati was shortlisted for Aviva Premiership Player of the Season, but lost out to Schalk Brits.

Tighthead has been viewed as an area of potential weakness for the Springboks, with only Jannie du Plessis seen as a genuine starting tighthead option.

Here's what Sport24 readers had to say about Brian Mujati.

"Mujati is part of the best front row forwards in the whole of Europe at Northampton Saints."
- Sean

"HM targeting him brings something good for the Boks on this European tour. That's not taking anything away from Jannie du Plessis at all. Mujati is well drilled in the playing conditions in England,Scotland and Ireland and if he does come into the Bok squad then it's all good surely. " - S

"Mujati is one of the top players in Europe - never mind one of the top props." - MarcWilson10000


"(1)Beast (2)Strauss (3)Mujati: Awesome front row..."
- collin.goliath

"It would be a good front row yes, Brian Mujati has been doing well with the Saints." - Paul.Sdow

"Brian Mujati would be an awesome addition to our scrum, finally we would have a destructive scrummager at tighthead." - clarence.hiles

"We need a good tighthead." - Johan Beets

"Played for the Boks in 2008, but not a SA citizen. How is that possible? Thought he was."
- T Liebenberg
