essentially its about Sarries losing Vincent Koch back to SA, but further down the article it suggests

"A secondary objective of the trip was to engage the large contingent of South Africaís top flight players abroad, with Erasmus reportedly talking to Koch, Duane Vermeulen, JP Pietersen, Jan Serfontein, Frans Steyn, Bismarck du Plessis, Juan de Jongh, Willie le Roux and Faf de Klerk.

It is understood that Erasmus is eager to recall key overseas-based players who have not accrued the minimum of 30 Test caps required to be eligible for Springbok selection."

Which as I understand it means he is trying to lure potential National players back to SA to be available for selection.

Not sure on the requirements for SA selection but it sounds like if you have 30 caps you can go abroad and still be selected, if not then you have to be SA based.

Just hope we have Faf tied up on a good contract!!

Doesnít it mean they are abandoning the room so the likes of faf donít have to go back?
