Durban - The Springboks have a fresh injury concern after Marcell Coetzee limped off against Argentina at Kings Park on Saturday.
The flank left the field in the second half of South Africa’s shocking 37-25 loss to the Pumas and Bok coach Heyneke Meyer revealed after the match that he was very concerned about the player's well-being.
“Yes, we’re very worried about him. It looks like his knee, an ACL," Meyer said.
"Hopefully Marcell won’t be too bad but I’m really worried, the doc is worried. He’s gone for a scan now.”
More would be known on Coetzee's injury on Monday, but the list of wounded Boks in the loose forward department is already extensive.
Coetzee joins Duane Vermeulen, Francois Louw and Willem Alberts as serious injury worries for Meyer as he plots a recovery from Saturday's loss as the countdown to this year's Rugby World Cup continues.
