After Eben Etzebeth injured himself by twisting his ankle in the ruck against France last year, he has been on a long road to recovery. He has been out for almost 9 moths and has been itching to get back on the field. He played his first game back for Western Province and is now back with the Bok squad. Here is what he had to say
How did you get your ankle back in shape?
Lots and lots of rehab, it took a while and put in loads of effort.
How was the first game back, how did the ankle feel?
It was great to be back on the field again after so long, the foot is great.
Scale of 1-10 how happy you back to be with the Boks?
Which games do you think will be the toughest?
I think all of them will be tough but I am looking forward to them.
Good luck for the rest of the Currie Cup and Tests.
