Makaab added to say that Andile Jali, who has teamed up with a personal trainer, believes he still has a mimimum of two more seasons in his legs.

“He was outstanding last year and good in the first few months of this season – but things can change. We will have to play it by ear now,” explained Makaab. 

“Then we have to get him ready for pre-season. He’s got a personal trainer at the moment and he is very motivated for the next chapter. I still believe, and this is my opinion, that he is the best No.6 in the land,” Makaab concluded.
