Cape Town - A Springbok training camp - the first of 2017 - is underway in Johannesburg following a gruelling week of Super Rugby. 

Five of the six South African sides won this past weekend, with only the Bulls missing out, but the physical nature of the weekend's rugby means that Monday's session at Wanderers Rugby Club is unlikely to be too strenuous. 

The camp goes ahead without any members from the Sharks or Kings, with both of those sides travelling back to South Africa from Australia and Singapore respectively. 

After months of speculation, SA Rugby only recently confirmed that Allister Coetzee will be staying on as Springbok coach in 2017. 

Franco Smith has joined as backline coach, while Brendan Venter is reportedly set to be unveiled as the new defence coach. 

The camp started on Sunday and on Monday continued with some light on-field exercises. It will run until Tuesday.

Coetzee addressed media from Johannesburg on Sunday, saying that he was confident that he would remain in the job until 2019.

The Boks' first Test of the year is against France at Loftus on June 10.
