Sharks center Lukhanyo Am says it’s a good feeling to be back in the Springboks setup once again.

The star centre initially missed out on the 33-man squad for South Africa’s title defence but has made a timely return ahead of the quarter-finals. His return is at the expense of star winger Makazole Mapimpi after he sustained an eye socket fracture during the Pool B clash against Tonga.

The centre suffered a knee injury in the team’s World Cup warm-up match against Argentina in Buenos Aires early in August, but could make his return when the Springboks face hosts France in the quarter-finals next Sunday.

Am admitted that while watching the team play from afar was weird, he enjoyed seeing his team-mates in action in France, where they defeated Scotland, Romania, and Tonga to place themselves in a good position to qualify for a quarter-final.
