Cape Town - Western Province have welcomed back two Springboks as they prepare to face the Sharks in a Currie Cup clash in Durban on Saturday.
Wing Dillyn Leyds and prop Wilco Louw, who both featured in last weekend’s Test against the All Blacks at Newlands, are available for the trip to Kings Park.
WP have to win the game if they want to secure a home semi-final.
WP’s contracted Springboks - Eben Etzebeth, Pieter-Steph du Toit and Siya Kolisi - are not available for selection.
The Sharks, meanwhile, have the luxury of already having secured top spot on the log, but will nevertheless also be able to call on a few Springboks.
They will be allowed to pick the Du Preez twins, Jean-Luc and Dan, Chiliboy Ralepelle, S’bu Nkosi, Thomas du Toit and Curwin Bosch.
It’s still unclear whether Sharks coach Robert du Preez will pick all his available Springboks or rest them for the playoffs.
