South Africa call up Saracens and Wasps stars for All Blacks clash
South Africa have recalled Saracens prop Vincent Koch for their home Rugby Championship Tests against Australia and New Zealand.
Wasps full-back Willie le Roux has also been selected, despite the Springboks initially saying he would not be picked for their final two home Tests of 2018.
“He goes with our best wishes for the next games,” said Wasps director of rugby Dai Young following Saturday’s win at Sale.
