Springbok head coach Rassie Erasmus has reduced his squad for the last two matches of their three-Test series against England.
It has been confirmed that prop Trevor Nyakane has been withdrawn from the Bok squad because of injury.
Nyakane has trouble with a rib injury and did not play a part in Saturday’s victory over the English at Emirates Airline Park in Johannesburg after he was initially named in the starting line-up.
Meanwhile, Ox Nche, Jason Jenkins, Kwagga Smith, Nizaam Carr, Travis Ismaiel, Curwin Bosch and Cameron Wright have been released from the squad back to their franchises following Saturday’s opening Test against England in Johannesburg.
The Springboks travel to Bloemfontein on Sunday afternoon where they will resume their preparations for the second international against England.
The second test is this weekend in Bloefontein
