Boks flank Kriel returns home

SHARE

The industrious flank complained of a shoulder problem after the 23-all draw in Perth last Saturday.

His condition did not improve since then and he was sent for a scan on Monday in Auckland.

The scan revealed that Kriel, who has formed a formidable loose trio combination with Siyamthanda Kolisi and Uzair Cassiem in recent weeks, had sustained a labrum tear.

Springbok team management has confirmed that no replacement will be called as the team has sufficient loose forward cover.

Meanwhile, prop Wilco Louw arrived in Auckland late on Monday as replacement for the injured Coenraad Oosthuizen, who returned home with a broken arm following the drawn Test in Perth.
