PLAYER WRITE-UP
Francois Louw returned to the Springboks in 2012 and made a huge impact from the outset. He made his Test debut against Wales in Cardiff in June 2010, earning recognition for a string of impressive performances for the Stormers during their impressive Vodacom Super Rugby campaign. A natural opensider with a knack for poaching opposition ball, Louw has made most of his impact at the breakdown where his game appears well suited to the new law interpretations. He currently plays for Bath in England and can also be used at blindside flank or No 8.
