EWN sports reporter, Philasande Sixaba says it is exciting to see a lot of new players in the Springbok squad following Siya Kolisi's announcement as captain of South Africa for the three-test home series against England next month.
Kolisi will captain the Springboks for the first time.
It is a split of two squads, they are taking 26 players to Washington and then half of the squad will be in South Africa preparing for the rival of the English next week. I think this will give coach Rassie Erasmus a good opportunity to see what sort of depth we have in SA rugby.— EWN sports reporter, Philasande Sixaba
