Bok casualties mount

Francois Louw is the most recent victim of the Springboks’ bruising defeat to the All Blacks on Saturday, with the Bath flanker ruled out for around two months due to a pinched nerve in his neck.

Bok team doctor Craig Roberts has confirmed that Louw will miss the rest of the Rugby Championship and may only be available again to the Boks for the November International series. I’m sure his English club, Bath, must be over the moon at this news and just dying to spend two months paying for his rehab, just to release him back to the South African team again once he’s fit.

No replacement has yet been named, but you can bet your bottom dollar there’s a has-been somewhere in the world keen to relive the 2007 glory days whose phone is ringing off the hook.

Update: And just as predicted, Schalk Burger has been confirmed as Louw’s replacement. I weep for young loose forwards in this country.
