Springbok coach Allister Coetzee has invited 13 players from the Natal Sharks for this weekend’s second camp in Stellenbosch. The Sharks were not part of the first camp held in Johannesburg owing to their tour commitments.
Why have Andre Esterhuizen and Philip van der Walt not been called up for the Bok camp?
Inside center Esterhuizen and eighthman Van der Walt have been two of the Sharks’ most consistent performers this season, but have seemingly been ignored by Coetzee. Another surprise exclusion is tighthead prop Lourens Adriaanse.
