Cape Town - Flank Jaco Kriel is an injury concern for the Springboks ahead of Saturday’s Rugby Championship Test against the All Blacks in Albany (kick-off 09:35 SA time).
According to Netwerk24, Kriel hurt his shoulder in last Saturday’s 23-23 draw against the Wallabies in Perth.
Should Kriel be unavailable for this Saturday’s Test, Jean-Luc du Preez is expected to fill the gap at No 7.
Jean-Luc's twin brother Dan is also in the squad and could be considered at No 8 in place of Uzair Cassiem.
Bok coach Allister Coetzee will name his side on Thursday.
