Ireland forwards coach Simon Easterby says the touring sides South African-born players are determined during the three-Test series to show the locals what they missed out on. CJ Stander, Richardt Strauss and Quinn Roux are all part of the 31-man travelling party that touched down in Cape Town on Monday ahead of Saturdays first Test, live on Sky Sports 1.Ireland have no injury worries ahead of the opening game, with Stander likely to start in the back row and Strauss expected to provide back-up for captain Rory Best at hooker. All three qualified to play for their adopted nation through residency and are likely to get a hostile reception at Newlands - but former Lions flanker Easterby says they are equally keen to prove their worth on home soil.CJs shown with his form over the last three seasons with Munster, hes been outstanding, Easterby said.Hes been a real talisman for them. Hes come into our Six Nations squad and done particularly well. Leinsters Richardt Strauss is another of Irelands squad born in South African He plays with his heart on his sleeve and is a real leader. Hell be emotional at the weekend along with Quinn and Richardt.They are guys that are very passionate about where they were brought up but hugely passionate about wearing the green jersey.To a man that has come through, not just in this week since arriving in South Africa but also the build-up.You get a sense that theyre very keen to show the country that they were born in what theyre missing. Greenwoods five to watch this summer WATCH: Paddy Jackson one of five to look out for Ireland are missing a host of big names for the tour, with Johnny Sexton, Peter OMahony, Sean OBrien, Cian Healy and Rob Kearney among those left at home. However, Easterby believes the absence of such key players will provide an opportunity for others to step in and step up.Every team will travel, Im sure, from the northern hemisphere this summer without certain players; were no different. What it does do is to allow us to view these players up close for the next three weeks, he said.Players who have stood up domestically in the Pro12 throughout the season have been given the opportunity. It will build some depth and they can lay a marker down for the guys that arent here. Alan Quinlan looks ahead to Irelands Summer Tour of South Africa For me, its great. We build some depth looking ahead to (the World Cup in) 2019 and well find out a lot about players in a really intense environment against one of the best sides in the world.While they are missing key backs, Easterby is confident in the forwards available will be able to match the might of the Springboks.We have more experience in the forward pack than maybe the backline but that challenge, for us to give quality front-foot ball to our backs, is something that were fully aware of, he said. Sean OBriens injury stricken year has led the flanker to seek surgery Its important that we try to give a platform to players that have come in and some of those exciting, young and maybe a little bit more inexperienced backs than weve had in the past - but theres still some quality and experience there to choose from as well.Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt announces his team for the first Test on Thursday.
