We bring you the latest from the Rugby World Cup 2011.
Habana out of Fiji clash, concern over Muller
Bryan Habana has been ruled out of Saturday’s clash against Fiji due to a knee injury he picked up in the game against Wales. There is also massive concern over Johann Muller who limped from training yesterday in what appeared to be a hamstring strain.
Already without the services of Victor Matfield and Bakkies Botha not available for the match, the Boks might consider playing Francois Louw at lock for this weekend’s game.
Dan Carter replaced
Dan Carter has been replaced in the New Zealand team for their match against Japan due to a sore back.
Colin Slade will take his place in the starting XV with Piri Weepu covering the flyhalf position from the bench.
RWC over for Sheridan, Skrela
Andrew Sheridan (Eng) and David Skrela (Fra) will both return home due to sustaining tournament ending shoulder injuries.
Jean-Marc Doussain of Toulouse will replace Skrela while Martin Johnson is yet to decide who will replace Sheridan.
