Springboks to go into conditioning programme

7:43 am on 8 September 2010

The South African Rugby Union has confirmed that all the contracted Springboks will undertake a conditioning programme for the next four weeks and will be withdrawn from their Currie Cup squads until 6 October.

Fitness and conditioning was seen as one of the issues in the Springboks disappointing Tri-Nations which resulted in just one win.

All players have been given a programme by the Springbok conditioning and medical team and will follow it under the supervision of the Provincial conditioning teams and in consultation with Springbok management.
