Pretoria - Former Ricoh Black Rams flyhalf Louis Fouche has been named in the Blue Bulls touring squad to Japan for their match against the Canon Eagles on Friday, 31 July.

Fouche played for the Japanese outfit last year and has been included in the 27-man squad which will travel to Japan on Friday.

Springboks Francois Hougaard, Arno Botha, Deon Stegmann, Werner Kruger, Dean Greyling and Bandise Maku are all among the travelling group.

Blue Bulls coach Nollis Marais believes the trip will be an important one for the squad

"This tour will help a lot with team building and should provide us with an ideal opportunity to work on a number of things, without the normal distractions at home. We showed some good signs in PE against the Kings, but I believe that the Canon Eagles will ask a few different questions and we need to adapt to that as well.

"I am also keen to see more combinations in a match situation, so it will be important for us to get things going in that match."

Blue Bulls touring squad:

Backs: Warrick Gelant, Kefentse Mahlo, Travis Ismaiel, Jamba Ulengo, William Small-Smith, Dries Swanepoel, Dan Kriel, Burger Odendaal, Louis Fouché, Tian Schoeman, Francois Hougaard, Ivan van Zyl

Forwards: Hanro Liebenberg, Arno Botha, Deon Stegmann, Lappies Labuschagne, Roelof Smit, Jannes Kirsten, Marvin Orie, RG Snyman, Jacques du Plessis, Werner Kruger, Dean Greyling, Morne Mellett, Nqoba Mxoli, Bandise Maku, Jaco Visagie
