Erasmus free to select overseas based players as he requires - Alexander

Saru president Mark Alexander confirmed that Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus has free reign to select as many overseas based players as he wishes collapsing the 30 Test rule that had been imposed on selecting players plying their trade abroad. Alexander also said that Erasmus has already spoken to all overseas based players that he will be considering and their clubs ahead of the June incoming tour against England. Alexander was speaking in Johannesburg at the launch of the MTN Call up campaign where one Springbok supporter will be afforded the privilege of travelling and being part of the national team up until and including next year’s Rugby World Cup in Japan.
