Cape Town - Golden Lions lock Franco
Mostert and Pumas scrumhalf Faf de Klerk have been released from the
Springbok camp and will be available for their provinces in the Absa Currie
Both players will join their provinces later on Tuesday.
In addition, Coenie
Oosthuizen, who has not been an official member of the squad, will continue
with his rehabilitation away from the camp.
“With the injury situation
looking better especially at lock and scrumhalf, we’ve decided to release
Franco and Faf from the squad and they will return to their provinces,” said
Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer.
“We have adequate cover in
both these positions but should the need arise for either of them to join the
squad again, they will slot in with ease. Their commitment and attitude in the
last month has been magnificent, they really worked hard and I believe both of
them will be ready for international rugby when needed.“With Coenie, we decided that the status quo
will remain regarding his rehabilitation programme. He has shown great progress
and he is in good hands, and we would like him to continue in that regard,”
