Hougaard named in Springbok squad for Australasia tour

Warriors scrum-half Francois Hougaard has been named in South Africa’s 28-man squad for their two Rugby Championship Tests against Australia and New Zealand.

Hougaard was not considered for the two Tests against Argentina because of a knee injury but the Springbok Sevens Olympian has since recovered.

The Springboks take on the Wallabies first up in Brisbane on Saturday 10 September before taking on the All Blacks on Saturday 17 September in Christchurch.
