The Springboks have unveiled their line-up for the shocks against Ireland

Published on

South Africa continues. After a brief squad review during the Test win over Wales, Rassie Erasmus is going back to basics. The Springboks have named the 39 players selected to prepare for the two shocks against Ireland in Pretoria on July 6, Durban on July 14 and Portugal on July 20. The world champions are back in a big way, with Sia Kolisi and Kobus Reinach back in the Top 14 after the season ended.

A reserve team was called

Also look out for the return of Cheslyn Kolbe. As Razi Erasmus justified in a press release, the decision was made to call up 14 more players for use at a higher level: “We have selected the best available squad and as squad depth is one of our key pillars heading into the 2027 World Cup, we thought it would be beneficial to name a reserve squad with a few players who will join us in training from time to time. In the coming weeks”. The Springboks will be looking to continue their momentum and establish their dominance.
