So SA has added an additional game against Argentina and another against the AB's in London. Which will only give them 6 test before the World Cup. With 3 games in the pool and possible QR it will take it to 10 test.
Also considering the work load our teams have these days and that all our SA based and European based players haven't had an off season.
I think it would be very hard to bring in new players like Manie, Roos etc and get them up to test standard. Not to mention that we have players like Pollard that has been injured and only making his way back.
Interesting year ahead
