Cape Town - Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer will hold a fourth and final Planning Camp in Durban from Sunday, with 42 players across all five Vodacom Super Rugby franchises invited to attend.

This will be the final opportunity for Meyer to work with the players before the final Springbok squad to face England will converge in Durban on Sunday, June 3.

The camp this weekend will take place on Sunday 27 and Monday, May 28. The players will depart Durban around midday on Monday and will be back with their Super Rugby franchises for training in the afternoon.

“We discussed this with the franchise CEOs recently and they’ve been very accommodating, as they were earlier in the season,” said Meyer.

“We’ve planned it in Durban, because the Stormers take on the Sharks at Kings Park the day before and will be there already. Players from the Bulls, Lions and Cheetahs will fly in on Sunday morning.

“This is by no means a final Springbok squad and the door will be open for all our eligible players until the announcement of the squad that will take on England.

“This camp will put in place a number of the finer details in terms of what we want to achieve against England. We will hit the ground running on June 3, when we converge in Durban for the first Test with a final squad.”

Meyer said that they will keep in touch with the Super Rugby franchises regarding injured players, but that they weren’t considered for this camp.
