Best of luck to the guy, we have plenty of back row cover and he loves representing SA.

Where is this confirmed? I can’t see any news.

I see that Wilco Louw, a Stormers forward, was selected in a training quad last month but nothing about Francois.

I had hoped his international days ere in the past but evidently no such luck. Every year he’s fine until he goes there, gets an injury & is out for months. Yes, we have cover but as usual it will be eroded I fear.

I suggest you change the thread title to “Flou NOT in SA squad”😄

I don’t understand. Why did that squad announcement just posted not include him? It happens every year & he ends up with exhausted or injured on both.

At least this year he didn’t play in the summer tour so has had a decent pre-season.

Excellent news for him but we haven’t seen the best of him for a number of years and this isn’t going to help his ageing body contribute his best work to the Bath cause.

Good for Flo, bad for us! Congrats as always to any player making a squad or team for their country though of course!

Let us hope he gets used sparingly or is given time to recover afterwards though. Want to see him making a big impact in the second half of the season when we are hopefully in a position to compete for silverware!



Adopted players: 2017-18 Shaun Knight; 2018-19 Jonathan Joseph
