RugbyU: Springboks recall Goosen for Argentina Test

NELSPRUIT, South Africa, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 18th August, 2016) - South Africa coach Allister Coetzee has recalled play-anywhere back Johan Goosen for a Rugby Championship first-round clash with Argentina in Nelspruit Saturday.

The 24-year-old from French Top 14 champions Racing 92, who can operate at full-back, centre and fly-half, last played for the Springboks in an away victory over Italy two seasons ago.

Poor form by long-time incumbent Willie le Roux in an unimpressive mid-year home series victory over Ireland prompted Coetzee to bring in Goosen at full-back.
