Springbok training camp a success

The Springbok training squad wrapped up preparations for their Castle Lager outgoing tour to the United Kingdom and France with an early morning training session in Stellenbosch on Friday, with Rassie Erasmus declaring the camp a success.

Twenty players spent the last five days training in Stellenbosch, where the Springbok coaches were able to work with the players on a daily basis to sharpen their readiness for the challenging tour of four test matches.

Erasmus said his coaching and conditioning staff tried to simulate high-intensity, match-like conditions during training because they will have to hit the ground running when they face England next week in front of 80 000 spectators at Twickenham.

SA rugby’s director of rugby addressed the media on Friday, expressing his satisfaction with the outcome of the camp.

“Looking back at the week’s training in Stellenbosch, I’m glad to say that objectives of the camp have been met,” said Erasmus.

“I think the challenge for us this week was to make sure the players reach match intensity, because you cannot just pitch up next week against England and think that after (a break

of) two weeks you’re going to be able to reach that level of match intensity that will be required.

“We tried to simulate match intensity while we also worked on many tactical things which we think England will bring to the match, and which are totally different from what we faced against New Zealand.”
