Springbok assistant coach Mzwandile Stick says the team will be fine even though it has been a while since they last played Test rugby.

“The good thing is that if you look at the core of our squad, we have had players overseas … they've been playing week in and week out and we're talking about tough, physical conditions,” Stick continued.“Some of our players have been in France, we had about five in Japan and if you look at all those players, they have each had between eight and 10 games in the last couple of months.

“We are in a good position and our local guys like Lukhanyo (Am), Ox (Nche) and Siya (Kolisi) are all up to speed in that they have also been playing week in and week out.“We are in a good space, and in any case nobody is interested in listening to our excuses,” Stick said.

Stick was speaking at an online press conference that also included Am. The Sharks captain said he had been impressed with fellow centre and new kid on the block Wandisile Simelane.“Wandi is a very talented player, we've seen it in Super Rugby and the Rainbow Cup. It's exciting what he can do, and he really backs himself,” Am said.

“We're looking to work together as outside backs, and as a group, we try to feed off each other.“That's something we're doing on attack or defence. It's about all of us trying to improve and aiming to reach our top level.” Read more: IOL News »
