Mon, 13 Aug 2012 15:08
Will the 10 Sharks in the Springbok team fall foul of the fatigue factor?
Despite having clocked over 40,000 air-miles in the last fortnight of the Super Rugby competition, the Bok management are confident the Durban contingent will be up for it when South Africa face Argentina at Newlands on Saturday.
"They were excited, they wanted to start," Bok backline coach Ricardo Loubscher said when asked about the Sharks - who only started training with the national team last Wednesday.
"There's no problem with their commitment.
"It is a question of managing and ensure you have the best guys on the field."
