Cape Town - Hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle has been passed fit for the Springboks' forthcoming tour in the Rugby Championship and will depart with the squad of 28 players to Australia and New Zealand on Saturday.

Ralepelle, who injured his back during a gym session on the morning of the Springboks’ 73-13 win over Argentina at FNB Stadium earlier this month, was ruled out of the tour to Argentina.

He has rejoined the squad at the training camp in Johannesburg this week and according to Springbok team doctor Craig Roberts, he should be fit for selection next week.

“Chiliboy stayed behind in South Africa to undergo rehabilitation while we went to Argentina and he responded very well,” said Roberts.

“On Friday we progressed with his rehabilitation and he did some fitness and running on the field. We’re happy with his progress.”

Apart from Ralepelle, Bjorn Basson (wing) and Jean de Villiers (centre and captain) took little or no part in training in the last two days.

Basson was forced to leave the field with a wrist injury against Argentina in Mendoza, while De Villiers has been in bed with flu.
