There’s a certain symmetry to this. As the door closes on CJ Stander’s career in this country he gets selected in the shirt he wore on his Ireland debut.

On that day against Wales in 2016 he had Jamie Heaslip for company at number eight and Tommy O’Donnell at open side. It wasn’t until the game against England 13 months later that he was shifted to the middle of the back-row. Now Stander is back where he belongs.
