Cape Town - The South African Rugby Union (SARU) has announced that negotiations with five more members of the Springbok management team have been concluded.

Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer’s assistant coaches were on Thursday officially confirmed as Johann van Graan (forwards), Ricardo Loubscher (backs) and John McFarland (defence).

Basil Carzis has been appointed as conditioning coach and Ian Schwartz will be the team manager.

Van Graan, McFarland and Carzis will join the Boks for the tour against England in June and then return to the Bulls until the end of the Super Rugby competition.

Meyer left Cape Town a happy man after overseeing three very successful planning camps over the past three weeks.

Two of the three camps were held in Pretoria, with players from the Cheetahs, Lions, Bulls and Sharks. The final camp, with players from the Stormers, concluded here on Thursday.
