Promising young flyhalf Curwin Bosch, No 8 Dan du Preez and fullback Warrick Gelant were included in the 34-man Springbok squad for the start of the 2017 Rugby Championship campaign on Saturday.
The 22-year old Du Preez is the twin brother of Springbok loose forward Jean-Luc du Preez.
“Our players must be well-conditioned, match-fit and also be able to make good on-field decisions. We are also looking for continuity, experience and combinations – all elements which I believe are reflected in the current squad selection,” said Coetzee.
The Springbok group gets together on Tuesday, 8 August in Port Elizabeth to start their preparations for the 2017 campaign, which kicks off their on 19 August against Argentina at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
