SA Tour Squads Announced

  • SA Tour Squads Announced

Michael Foley has left the squad that defeated the Bulls Saturday almost completely unchanged, with only three new additions to the touring side. These three additions include lock Pheonix Battye, outside back Patrick Dellit and flyhalf Luke Burton (thought it could be assumed Burton will be put at centre due to the recent form of Sias Ebersohn). 

Coach Michael Foley said “The Bulls provided some insight into the next block of games. However, while we can expect more mauling and clever strategic kicking, the Cheetahs will also play with a lot of width and the Stormers are noted for their defence." - westernforce.com.au

He believes the tour will be a great challenge for them and they will need to carry the intensity they had in the Bulls and Waratahs games.
