South African squad announced

Jasper and Marco selected.
What's interesting is how few players selected from the Premiership. Other than our two, one from Saras and one from Sale.

It might hurt us but I hope Scott gets called up,he deserves it and it was gutting for him last time when he got picked and all their games were cancelled
I wonder if his age will count against him.

Good for him, great news. Likely to only affect us for the Bath game in terms of Premiership matches. We are in good shape with Kelly, Porter and Socino as great options.

Just seen this:

“The South Africa squad travel to France on Friday for a one-week training camp before heading to Britain for a trio of November internationals against Wales, Scotland and England”

Wonder if that means we will be without Marco and Jasper for this weekend against Sale? And if so I’m guessing they will be without their SA contingent..

Wouldn’t this week be outside the window so we can’t/not supposed to release them?

Or if did like Saints and George North would get fined.

Although we will miss them I think overall it is a good thing that players come to Tigers and then get noticed by their country (Jasper) or resurrect their international career (Scott) based on taking their opportunity and giving outstanding performances. I hope it attracts others in those positions to look positively at a move. Nic Dolly and Dan Kelly are even more outliers that has stepped up a couple of levels. Both may need more time to become regular internationals but they make the path to Welford road look more attractive to similar players.

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone else applied for England tickets for November as a season ticket holder through the club and has heard that they have been successful yet? Hoping to get some for my Dad’s birthday but yet to get a call. Thanks, :smt001
