Boks receive Bosman boost

Cheetahs centre Meyer Bosman has been added to the Springbok training squad that will assemble in Pretoria on Monday.

Bosman will be available for the Boks’ warm-up against a Namibian XV next Friday. He was originally named at No 12 for the invitational side, but given the Cheetahs’ policy on releasing non-Springboks when a fixture against the Lions looms, Bosman was removed.

On Sunday the Bok management announced Bosman would join their squad to cover at centre given Jean de Villiers is still not fully recovered from a groin ailment.
