Springboks call in defensive help

10:45 am on 12 August 2010

The Springbok coach Peter de Villiers has called in some extra defense help this week as they prepare for next week's Tri-Nations match against the All Blacks in Johannesburg.

Their recent defensive lapses has prompted de Villiers to lean on the knowledge and know-how of the best defensive team in the recent Super 14.

Stormers defense coach Jacques Nienaber has been drawn into the national training camp.

The Stormers boasted by far the best defensive record in the recent Super 14 season, conceding just 18 tries in 15 matches.

The Springboks have conceded 10 tries in three matches so far in the Tri-Nations.
