Cape Town - Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus named a formidable 31-man squad for this year's Rugby World Cup in Japan on Monday.
The Boks will be looking for a third Webb Ellis Cup title having tasted success in 1995 at home and in 2007 in France.
South Africa's policy of picking overseas-based players has its pros and cons - and this year's squad sees no fewer than eight (26%) plying their trade beyond South Africa's borders.
