    Wasps director of rugby Dai Young says Willie le Roux is available for the Springboks’ last two matches of the Rugby Championship.

    The Boks play the Wallabies in Port Elizabeth next Saturday and the All Blacks in Pretoria on 6 October.

    Le Roux returned to Wasps after the Boks’ tour of Australia and New Zealand.

    ‘If he gets selected, he goes. There’s nothing we can do to stop that,’ Young told the Coventry Telegraph when asked if Le Roux would rejoin the Boks.

    ‘We didn’t expect him to be playing. I’d be lying if I said that. Willie felt his international career was over when he came here, we had those discussions.

    ‘South Africa have had a changing of the guard there, and that has changed a lot of things. He’s gone back into the fold and played really well.

    ‘The big thing for him as well, is if he is involved in these next two games, the second game will be his 50th cap, so that is a big incentive for Willie.’
