Van der Merwe: Called up
South Africa coach Peter de Villiers has called up Flip van der Merwe ahead of Saturday's Tri-Nations match against the All Blacks in Wellington.
With Bakkies Botha suspended for nine weeks for his head butt on Jimmy Cowan in the 32-12 defeat in Auckland and Danie Rossouw now struggling with a calf strain, van der Merwe is jetting out as cover.
Bulls lock van der Merwe made his debut against France in June and went on to score a try against Italy in East London.
