It was a surprise to have seen that Erasmus did not have a place for Lions Cyle Brink when he named his team for the first test against Argentina on Thursday.
Unfortunately for Brink he sustain a knee injury in training and will be leaving the Bok camp.
He was seen on crutches in the team hotel on Thursday but it was not known how serious the injury is at the moment.
It is well known that Erasmus is keen to give Brink a run in the Championship but we will have now to sit and wait and see how serious this injury is and how soon he will be back in contention.
This weekend will see Whiteley, Kolisi and Louw to start with Van Staaden on the bench as cover.
The Boks later confirmed that no replacement will be called up, with the Lions medical team set to conduct further assessments.
