Tried and trusted for tour

2013-10-26 00:00

SHARKS wing JP Pietersen, currently playing his rugby in Japan, will return to the 30-man Springbok squad for the three-Test tour of Europe next month. However, world-class scrumhalf Fourie du Preez is expected to miss the trip.

The 27-year-old Pietersen, who will return to Durban in February to play Super Rugby for the Sharks, also has an agreement with his Japanese club Panasonic Wild Knights to play for the Springboks on this end-of-year tour. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
