Flank Marcell Coetzee, wing Bjorn Basson and scrumhalf Piet van Zyl have been released from the Springbok squad to their provinces for Currie Cup duty this weekend.

Flank Marcell Coetzee, wing Bjorn Basson and scrumhalf Piet van Zyl have been released from the Springbok squad to their provinces for Currie Cup duty this weekend.

The trio join lock Franco van der Merwe and centre Juan de Jongh as squad members who are available to play in the Currie Cup this weekend.

The reason that Van Zyl has been released is because veteran scrumhalf Fourie du Preez will join up with the Boks for their two remaining Rugby Championship matches.

The remaining members of the Springbok squad will gather in Cape Town on Friday, where the injury situation will be assessed. A final call on any possible changes to the squad will be made by Sunday.

The Springboks will start their on-field preparations on Monday for next Saturday's Test against Australia at Newlands.

"We have two crucial matches ahead and we will have to work very hard if we are to keep alive our chances of winning the Rugby Championship," said Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer.
