Cape Town - Two Springboks - Willie le Roux and Faf de Klerk - have been named in England's Premiership 'Team of the Year' for the 2017/18 season.

The acknowledgement comes at a time when both players are believed to be on new Bok coach Rassie Erasmus' radar ahead of the June International window. 

De Klerk was also one of five players nominated for the 'Player of the Year' award, but that honour went to Vereniki Goneva of the Newcastle Falcons after the Fijian wing was the joint top try-scorer in the competition with 13.

England's Premiership Team of the Year:

15 Willie le Roux (Wasps), 14 Vereniki Goneva (Newcastle Falcons), 13 Rob Horne (Northampton Saints), 12 Matt Toomua (Leicester Tigers), 11 Josh Adams (Worcester Warriors), 10 Danny Cipriani (Wasps), 9 Faf de Klerk (Sale Sharks), 8 Sam Simmonds (Exeter Chiefs), 7 Don Armand (Exeter Chiefs), 6 Jamie Gibson (Northampton Saints), 5 Ed Slater (Gloucester Rugby), 4 Calum Green (Newcastle Falcons), 3 John Afoa (Gloucester Rugby), 2 Luke Cowan-Dickie (Exeter Chiefs), 1 Ellis Genge (Leicester Tigers)
