Springbok scrum-half Ruan Pienaar has said that he wants to play for the Springboks so much that he is willing to play anywhere that coach Heyneke Meyer wants him to play.
Twenty-eight-year-old Pienaar left South Africa partly because he was frustrated with being played out of position and has become a favourite with new team Ulster who reached the Heineken Cup final.
Since joining Ulster two years ago Pienaar has only played at scrumhalf but the Sharks and Springboks have played him at scrumhalf, flyhalf or fullback.
"Scrumhalf would definitely be my preferred position, but I'm hungry to play for the Springboks and will play where I get a spot."
"Even though I'm playing overseas, my main goal is still to play for the Boks," the 51 cap Springbok told Volksblad.
"It really helped that I was only used at scrumhalf the past two years. It was good for my confidence."
Springbok coach Meyer confirmed earlier this week that Pienaar will be included when the Springboks gather for the first Test match against England next weekend.
It's unlikely that Meyer will play Pienaar at scrumhalf as it is understood that Fourie du Preez is his first-choice No 9 with Francois Hougaard in the mix at wing or scrumhalf.
The likely scenario for Pienaar is to be on the bench as cover for flyhalf or fullback.
The Springboks first Test against England starts in Durban on June 9, followed by Tests in Johannesburg (June 16) and Port Elizabeth (June 23).
