Next weeks games are not in the Reg 9 window, so any release for the Springbok players is something they will have specifically negotiated through things like "peace deals, etc."...Kind of related but Rugby Australia need to lay down the law here. I don't understand why the Aus players in Japan are being treated differently to Saffas.
This talk of peace deals etc. is nonsense
It should be made clear that post-WC, Aus players will be called up under Reg 9 in July and November just as every other country does.
