“We’ve had a good week off and we’re looking forward to heading off on tour,” said Coetzee

“Traditionally, we’ve always performed well in New Zealand and Australia and we’re naturally hoping for positive results over the next four weeks.

“It’s a big boost having Scarra, Eben, Rynhardt, Elton and Bryan back from injury, but, like I’ve said throughout the season, it’s a squad effort and we will rely on all 26 players on tour.”
