Comprehensive Bok injury update

The Springbok medical team has assessed the injuries to players during the loss to New Zealand last week with news coming through that two of the four injured would miss the upcoming test against Argentina.

Jannie du Plessis and Francois Louw are set to miss the match in Durban. Jannie is struggling with his knee while Louw has a rotator cuff injury. The good news is that both Vincent Koch and Warren Whiteley are expected to be fit to face Argentina in little over a week’s time.

Looking at the longer term injury concerns, there are a few players that may well be available to play in the Durban test. Jean de Villiers is expected to make his return to international rugby after getting through two games for the Western Province side.

Further to this, Fourie Du Preez and Willem Alberts also looks set to be available for the first time this year. All players with injuries will be assessed on Monday where a call will be made on their availability for the match.

Other currently on the crock-list: Marcell Coetzee, Jan Serfontein, Piet-Steph du Toit and Steven Kitshoff will all go through the motions on Monday to assess their readiness for international duty, with the hope that they will be available for the Durban test match. Worst case scenario for these players would be to only play in the second Argentina test, which takes place in Argentina.

Others currently injured but not in the running for next week include Victor Matfield, JP Pietersen, Duane Vermeulen, Coenie Oosthuizen, Frans Malherbe and Frans Steyn. It was confirmed that both Matfield and Pietersen are confirmed to not be available for either of the two test matches against Argentina, while it is hoped that Frans Steyn will make it back in time to play the second match in Argentina.
