Cape Town - Ruan Dreyer arrived in Perth on Monday to complete the assembly of the full Springbok squad in Western Australia for this Saturday’s Rugby Championship Test against the Wallabies.
 
The front ranker arrived at around midday at the team hotel, and joined his Springbok team-mates shortly after lunch on the training fields of the nearby Hale High School.
 
Dreyer’s arrival in Perth capped a whirlwind week for the prop, who last week witnessed the birth of his first child and played for the Xerox Golden Lions in the Currie Cup before jetting out to Australia.
 
“Blessed and very grateful,” Dreyer, a man of few words, replied when he was asked to describe his experiences over the past few days.
 
His wife, Zonika, gave birth to baby Anru last Tuesday, just a day after he had returned from Argentina, where the Springboks defeated Los Pumas in Salta.
 
The Springbok team to face the Wallabies will be named on Thursday.
