Fancois Louw rejoins Boks in Pretoria

Upon a return to South Africa, experienced loose forward Francois Louw has rejoined the Springbok squad in Pretoria.

Louw, who played in the first four matches of the Rugby Championship, was not expected to feature in the final leg, due to club commitments in England.

The Springboks however confirmed that he rejoined them on Monday as they got preparations underway for the All Black test this coming weekend.

The call up is most likely a cover for number 8 Warren Whiteley, who is struggling with a  groin injury.

Sikhumbuzo Notshe started in place of Whiteley against Australia this past weekend, putting in a stellar 40 minutes.
