Cape Town - Rudy Paige and Marnitz Boshoff have been called up to the Springbok squad for the last week of the Castle Lager Outgoing Tour in Cardiff next week.

Paige, from the Blue Bulls and the Golden Lions’ Boshoff will join in the squad on Sunday to provide specialist cover at scrumhalf and flyhalf as the Springboks’ overseas-based players are not available for the last match of the season due to the fact that it falls outside the Test window.

“This means that Jano Vermaak, Morne Steyn and Johan Goosen are not available to face Wales, which is why we had to get in specialist cover at scrumhalf and flyhalf,” said Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer.

“Marnitz was part of our squad earlier in the season and made his Test debut in June, while Rudy has impressed during the latter part of the Absa Currie Cup and also spent a week at our training camp in Stellenbosch, so he is up to speed with our structures.”

Springbok squad for Wales Test:

Marnitz Boshoff, Nizaam Carr, Marcell Coetzee, Damian De Allende, Lodewyk de Jager, Jean de Villiers (captain), Ruan Dreyer, Bismarck du Plessis, Jannie du Plessis, Eben Etzebeth, Cornal Hendricks, Francois Hougaard, Jaco Kriel, Patrick Lambie, Willie le Roux, Victor Matfield, Teboho “Oupa” Mohoje, Tendai Mtawarira, Lwazi Mvovo, Scarra Ntubeni, Trevor Nyakane, Coenie Oosthuizen, Rudy Paige, Handré Pollard, Julian Redelinghuys, Cobus Reinach, Seabelo Senatla, Jan Serfontein, Adriaan Strauss, Duane Vermeulen, Warren Whiteley
