Erasmus waits for clarity over Mostert and won't enforce regulation on release of players in Europe

Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus says there is still no clarity around the availability of lock Franco Mostert who is entangled in a tug-of-war for his services between English club Gloucester and the Lions in South Africa. Erasmus further went on to say that he can enforce World Rugby’s regulation of having overseas based players join the Springboks on their end of year tour but would rather foster a good working relationship between their clubs and country. The Springboks will be without scrumhalf Faf de Klerk throughout their month long tour as per agreement between the Sale Sharks and Springbok management.
