Johannesburg - Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer is set to reward the new players in his
squad by keeping them in the starting line-up for this weekend’s Castle
Lager Incoming Series match against Scotland in Nelspruit.
According to the supersport.com website, Meyer admitted his initial idea was to rotate players through the three
June tests, but after the performances he had seen, it was more
important to reward them with a renewed call-up to the team so as to
confirm his belief in them.
At the back, JJ Engelbrecht and Willie le Roux are set to keep their
places as Meyer believes that they should be rewarded for their
performance against Italy.
While the scrumhalf situation is still unresolved, Ruan Pienaar is set
to start the test in Jano Vermaak’s place while Lwazi Mvovo may also get
a run on the wing.
