Bulls and Springbok prop Trevor Nyakane says the newly formed Rainbow Cup SA will help players get the match practice they desperately need ahead of the long-awaited British & Irish Lions tour in June and July.

“I think the boys are looking forward to the Rainbow Cup and everyone is really willing to work as hard as they can so that they have a chance to be considered to play in the British & Irish Lions tour.“It’s not ideal for everyone because we are not going to play enough games‚ but we take it as it comes. It is about trying to get fit and working as hard as we can to give the coach a strong hand by being fit.

“We all know what it takes to play Springbok rugby and from my side it’s just to make sure that by the time we get there I have reached those standards.“As a player you have to play with the cards that you are dealt with because there have been a lot of things happening due to the pandemic. For us it's about preparing as well as we can because there is nothing else we can do. If you get a chance to represent SA in that Lions series‚ you must be ready to go.”

Springbok players had alignment camps with coach Jacques Nienaber‚ his assistants and managers last week and Nyakane said the engagements were fruitful.“The engagements were good. Obviously there was a lot of information and things that were enlightening. As players we don’t have much time to go on bigger camps and every little bit of information helps so that we are prepared to do what is required to play in the green and gold. headtopics.com
