In what could arguably be called good news the Bok skipper could miss the Samoa test.
The guy who kept on running into defenders with his back first could miss the Samoa test… surprisingly not because he hurt his back running into defenders… but because he injured his shoulder and rib… which is strange seeing as he never hit any defenders from the front.
In good other news Pierre Spies was also hurt, and Jannie Du Plessis may finally get some rest having also been inured…
Willem Alberts has returned to training from Monday and is looking good for inclusion this Saturday.
This incoming series has played havoc with the Boks with four selections already out long terms in Francois Hougaard, Janno Vermaak, Pieter-Steph Du Toit and Arno Botha.
Even before the series started we lost Frans Malherbe, Pat Cilliers, Duane Vermeulen, Cobus Reinach, Johan Goosen, Jaco Taute, JP Pietersen and Frans Steyn from last year!
