Cronje set for return
25 March 2007 12:09pm
Controversial former Springbok lock Geo Cronje is set to make a return to the playing field after more than three years on the sidelines with a knee injury.
Cronje is expected to turn out for the Golden Lions side in the lesser Vodacom Cup in the next fortnight, and will then move up to Super 14 rugby in mid-April.
He became infamous following the 2003 World Cup selection race row where he was alleged to have refused to share a room with black team-mate Quinton Davids.
The row engulfed South Africa and both players were left out of the World Cup squad.
Cronje signed for Harlequins in England, but sustained the knee injury and had his contract eventually annulled without ever playing a game for the club.
