Mvovo will train with the Sharks this week and join the Springbok squad in Cape Town on Sunday evening.

Due to injury concerns in other positions, Mvovo was the only player who was released this week. In the coming fortnight four players not in an identified enlarged match-day squad of 26 will be released on the Wednesday of both Test weeks after conclusion of the day’s activities to join their respective provinces for the Currie Cup.

South Africa's next Test in the Rugby Championship is against Australia at Newlands on September 27.
