Wiese and Van Staden in South Africa squad

Jasper Wiese and Marco van Staden have been included in the South Africa squad for their upcoming Autumn internationals.

The Leicester Tigers back-rowers featured for the Springboks in their series against the British & Irish Lions in the summer, as well as the recent Rugby Championship in Australia against the All Blacks, Los Pumas and Wallabies.

Wiese made his return to action for Tigers in last weekend's away win over Worcester Warriors, while van Staden has made back-to-back appearances for Leicester in Rounds 4 and 5 of the 21/22 Gallagher Premiership campaign.

The pair join club-mates Nic Dolly, Ellis Genge, George Martin, Freddie Steward and Ben Youngs (all England), as well as Hosea Saumaki (Tonga) in being selected by their respective nations for upcoming internationals in the Autumn windown.
