Trevor Nyakane with Franco Mostert of South Africa during the Rugby World Warm up match between Japan and South Africa at the Rugby Stadium,Saitama prefecture, Kumagaya, Friday 6th September 2019 (Mandatory Byline -Steve Haag Sports Hollywoodbets)

It was a big concern when we saw Trevor Nyakane coming of the field after just 14 minutes in Fridays test against Japan, but Springbok management confirmed that they expect he will be fit and ready for the clash against the All Blacks.

South Africa will face the All Blacks in their first pool match on the 21 September.

He sprained a knee in the 41-7 win over the host in the Springboks last warm-up match before the tournament starts.

Nyakane has 41 Test caps to his name and will be in his second Rugby World Cup.
