WELLINGTON – The Springboks have assembled an extended squad in New Zealand ahead of upcoming Rugby Championship matches against the All Blacks and Argentina's Pumas.
Last Thursday 14 Springbok players flew out to New Zealand and many of them could be considered first players.
On Saturday evening coach Rassie Erasmus and a group of eight winged their way to Wellington and were scheduled to arrive on Monday.
The third wave of 10 players flew out on Sunday. Additionally, four more players will fly out on Monday so that eventually there will be 36 players in New Zealand.
The Boks' travel plans have been designed to manage the hectic travel period in the build-up to the World Cup.
