During a Stormers online press conference on Thursday, Kolisi said he had not heard anything from the Springbok or SA Rugby coaches on whether a decision had yet been made.
“I have no idea,” Kolisi said. “We haven’t talked much about it. Just we will have to wait for the official statement. “
“For now, all that is important to us is trying to get as many minutes as we can and make sure we really play ourselves on the team.”
‘[La confirmación] It could come today or tomorrow, but it’s not going to change a thing for us this weekend. That is the most important ‘.
In terms of playing time, there are a lot of Springboks that are nowhere near the 400+ minutes of play that medical experts suggest which is the ideal brand to mitigate injuries, and the well-being of the player was always expected to be at the center of any decision.
