INJURY UPDATE: Stormers scrumhalf Jano Vermaak will be on the Springboks' flight to Argentina after being called up to replace the injured Ross Cronjé.

Cronjé sustained a right ankle injury during the Boks' 37-15 victory over Argentina in Port Elizabeth in the opening round of the Rugby Championship.

Loose forward Teboho Mohoje, however, was not considered for selection because of the rib injury he sustained while playing in the Currie Cup for the Free State Cheetahs against the Blue Bulls, while Francois Venter returns to the squad after not being involved in the opener.
Flyhalf Handré Pollard will remain in South Africa to continue with the final phase of his rehabilitation. 
Meanwhile, the Springboks are set to continue with their match preparations in Port Elizabeth, before flying out to Johannesburg on Tuesday and then onto Argentina early on Wednesday morning.
Springbok coach, Allister Coetzee, will announce his matchday squad of 23 players on Thursday morning (Argentine time) in Buenos Aires, just before the team travels to Salta. 
The Springbok squad to travel to Argentina:

Forwards: Uzair Cassiem, Lodewyk de Jager, Ruan Dreyer, Daniel du Preez, Jean-Luc du Preez, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Eben Etzebeth, Steven Kitshoff, Siya Kolisi, Jaco Kriel, Malcolm Marx, Mbongeni Mbonambi, Franco Mostert, Tendai Mtawarira, Trevor Nyakane, Coenie Oosthuizen, Mahlatse Ralepelle.

Backs: Curwin Bosch, Andries Coetzee, Damian de Allende, Francois Hougaard, Elton Jantjies, Jesse Kriel, Rudy Paige, Raymond Rhule, Jan Serfontein, Courtnall Skosan, Francois Venter, Jano Vermaak.
