Prop cleared to tour with Boks Down Under

Wed, 30 Aug 2017 15:27

INJURY UPDATE: The Springboks received a timely boost with confirmation that seasoned prop Coenraad Oosthuizen can tour with the team to Australasia.

Oosthuizen, 28, underwent a scan in Durban on Tuesday, to examine the rib injury he sustained in the South Africa's 41-23 over Argentina in Salta last Saturday.

The scan revealed no fracture.
Oosthuizen will therefore join the Springboks when they reassemble in Johannesburg on Friday.

Konrad von Hagen, the Springboks' team doctor, confirmed that the front row forward will only be considered for selection for the Rugby Championship Test against Australia in Perth on September 9 if his pain and discomfort settles sufficiently.

The following week the Springboks play New Zealand in Albany.
