The big No 8 is back in the Bok fold after miss­ing out last sea­son, but in­jury will pre­vent him from turn­ing out in the first Test this week­end. Called back from Toulon to bol­ster the pack and pro­vide some lead­er­ship and ex­pe­ri­ence, Ver­meulen will have to be happy with a place on the side of the scrum or on the bench. Can still add plenty of fire and power to the Boks, but will his age, in­juries and the fact he’s based over­seas count against him?
