PLEASE BE REMINDED THIS IS A DIRECT TRANSLATION FROM AFRIKAANS TO ENGLISH

Jake White indicated at Loftus Versfeld on Tuesday that it had been decided to leave some Bulls stalwarts at home with a view to Saturday’s showdown with the Northampton Saints in the quarter-finals of the Champions Cup competition. What he did not say in so many words is that a total of ten Springboks remained behind in Pretoria. Willie le Roux, Kurt-Lee Arendse, Canan Moodie, Johan Goosen, Embrose Papier, Elrigh Louw, the co-captains Marcell Coetzee and Ruan Nortjé, Wilco Louw and Gerhard Steenekamp will all follow the match on Saturday night on the box. Actually 11, if you count the injured Goat-flank Marco van Staden byre-ken. Other first choice players like David Kriel, Ruan Vermaak and Johan Grobbelaar does not tour with us either. This team selection shows once again that the four South African franchises give preference to the United Rugby Championship (URC) over the European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup competitions. You can’t exactly blame White and his inner circle. Should the Bulls settle with the Saints, they must travel back home to take on Munster and the Ospreys in the HRC and then fly north again for the Champions Cup semi-finals.
