JOHANNESBURG - ANC Secretary-General Gwede Mantashe has questioned Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer's squad selection.

He wants an explanation of why black players are being overlooked.

“The reality of the matter is that Heyneke Meyer should explain to the nation why he overlooks Elton Jantjies, who has played very well. I don’t think he’s less experienced than Pat Lambie.”

The Springboks take on Ireland on Saturday in their first match on their end of year tour to the United Kingdom.
