The upcoming Rainbow Cup will serve as a de-facto preparation series for the Springboks
rugby Rassie Erasmus wants every Springbok to get as much game time as possible.
Vodacom Bulls coach Jake White admitted as much and said his side were informed they would have the services of all their Springboks available for the full Rainbow Cup in order to give them enough battle preparation for the Lions series that awaits.
“We have our Springbok players available until the end of the Rainbow Cup. That is the 19th of June if you make the final. Those Springbok players will join the national set-up. We have them for all six fixtures. The message I got from Rassie is that he would like them all to play and he would like to have them all ready for the Lions’ series,” White said.
