Conradie added to Springboks squad
May 20, 2008
Bolla Conradie has been called up to join the Springbok training squad.
The Stormers scrumhalf, along with the other 42 members of the squad, will assemble in Somerset West tomorrow.
Injuries to Fourie du Preez and Heini Adams necessitated the move.
"I am delighted to be able to call on a player of Bolla's quality and experience," said Springbok coach Peter de Villiers. "He was unlucky to miss out on the initial squad selection and I am very pleased for him that he will get his opportunity now."
Conradie has played 15 Tests for the Springboks with his last appearance coming against Argentina in 2005.
