Cape Town - Blitzboks star Rosko Specman has revealed that several Super Rugby franchises have expressed an interest in his services.

The 27-year-old was recently nominated alongside Kyle Brown and Seabelo Senatla for the SA Sevens Player of the Year award.

But in an interview with Netwerk24, Specman admitted that a return to the 15-man code is something he is pondering.

He is no stranger to the 15-man game, having played Currie Cup rugby for the Pumas between 2013 and 2015.

Testing himself at Super Rugby level is an exciting prospect for Specman.

“There are several teams that showed interest in my services, but I still have to decide. I’d like to get the opportunity to play at Super Rugby level to test myself against the best at that level.”

Senatla (Stormers) and Kwagga Smith (Lions) are Springbok Sevens players expected to get more game time in Super Rugby next year.
