Ernie Els' daughter, Samantha, to make debut for Springbok Women at lock

Her father has enthralled golf fans for decades with those iconic Big Easy drives onto the fairway, now she wants to be a towering presence in the lineout.

In one of those remarkable turn of events sport is invariably known for, Samantha Els, daughter of SA golf legend Ernie, will make her debut for the Springbok Women when they take on the San Clemente Rhinos in Constantia later on Tuesday.

Els currently turns out for New York Rugby Club, having completed her studies in Human Biology at Stanford University, which she also represented in the oval ball game.

She'll also have the comfort of playing alongside regular Bok skipper Nolusindiso Booi, South Africa's joint record-holder for appearances and returnee from a long-term injury.

Els, who gleefully states that her home remains Herold's Bay in the Southern Cape, isn't a stranger to the national setup run by interim head coach Louis Koen.

She was invited to her first national alignment camp back in August and is one of four players plying their trade overseas with Catha Jacobs (Leicester Women), Babalwa Latsha (Harlequins Women) and Amber Schonert (Sale Sharks Women).

Flyhalf Lara Schats, nowadays at Maties, previously played for Hong Kong but is awaiting clearance to change allegiance.

The match at False Bay Rugby Club is a final audition for the players before Koen finalises his squad for WXV 2 tournament next month. 

"I was mindful of the fact that we played in a Test match only two days ago on Saturday, and we will be playing another match this coming Saturday against a high-ranked Barbarians
