Durban - Springbok scrumhalf Jano Vermaak
will miss the rest of the Incoming Test Series due to a hamstring injury he
suffered in the 44-10 victory over Italy at Kings Park on Saturday.
The 28-year-old had a good debut for the
Boks, but had to unfortunately leave the field late in the game when he tore his
hamstring. He was replaced by Ruan Pienaar.
"The doc looked at him briefly. It
doesn't look good and he probably won't be available for the rest of the
series," Bok coach Heyneke Meyer said on Saturday night.
"He will go for a scan on Monday so
that we can make a proper call. We will obviously first see if Jano can stay
on, but there are a few guys that played well. We got Hougie (Francois
Hougaard) there as well, but after speaking to the doc, I think we will have to
probably bring in another scrumhalf into the squad."
South Africa take on Scotland at the
Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit next week and according to Meyer, he might make a
few changes to his starting line-up.
"We would like some continuity, but I
think there will be a few changes because there are one or two injuries as
well. I want to keep the core of the team, especially the backs so that they
can have continuity going into the Rugby Championship series. But the injury
situation is not that bad," he explained.
