Naka Drotske has reason to smile, as it is reported that Springboks Coenie Oosthuizen (back) and Johan Goosen (knee) are progressing well. Willie le Roux (groin), Phillip van der Walt (knee), Lappies Labuschagne (ankle) and Springbok Heinrich Brüssow (shoulder) are all on track for early participation in this years Super Rugby Competition.
Of the six only Heinrich Brüssow will miss the opening rounds of Super Rugby. The others are earmarked to feature in at least one of the scheduled warm-up fixtures against the Lions on the 26 January and the Bulls on 9 February. Goosen was ill and didn’t train this week, but was already kicking at goal.
