Jake to poach SA player

2012-07-27 14:48

London - Brumbies coach Jake White may use a trip home as an opportunity to recruit a South African player to add to his Super Rugby squad.

According to the Canberra Times website, White won many plaudits for fashioning a competitive side out of largely unheralded players, some of whom went on to play for Australia in June.

With virtually all of his squad re-signed for next season, White is looking to possibly supplement home talent with a South African recruit.

The Brumbies led the Australian Conference for virtually the entire Super Rugby season, before losing to the lowly Blues in the final round, resulting in t hem finishing second behind the Reds, and missing out on the playoffs.

''I think with Australia going into the World Cup in three years' time, a development player who I feel could be good enough to play for the Wallabies in three years' time, would be a great signing for us,'' White said.

    Robert Ebershon ... Sias is going to the Force and they both have not represented SA, and Aus definately does not have the centres currently that have always been a strength of their game

    Mr White is starting to see that Aussie players are useless. You are welcome to do that Mr white because that will mean Super rugby will be dominated by SA players.
