Springboks thinking outside the box

Rassie Erasmus is already showing signs of being a very clever international coach.

The two players who triggered South Africa's comeback from 3-24 down on Saturday were both from the Premiership - Sale Sharks' Faf de Klerk and Wasps' Willie Le Roux.

So it make perfect sense to add to the Springbok squad another clever operator from the Premiership - the recently retired Schalk Brits.

Brits is a fabulous player, ideally suited to South Africa's high octane game and armed with vast knowledge of the English players via his many years at Sarries.

If ever there was a perfect example of thinking outside the box, this is it.
