De Klerk won’t feature this weekend either as he has been released to play for his club‚ Sale Sharks.
“The only reason our best team didn’t play against England is that [overseas-based players] Willie [le Roux] and Faf [de Klerk] weren’t available because the match fell outside of the international window‚” Stick said.
“Currently‚ we will take any opportunity to select our best team and I’m sure we will do so this weekend.
“That’s [the reasons for De Klerk’s release] is an argument between Rassie Erasmus and the club.
“We knew when we came on tour that Faf would only play one or two games.
“With Faf being absent‚ it’s a great opportunity for the youngsters. Embrose Papier had a very good game against Scotland and controlled the game very well.
