Cape Town - World XV coach Nick Mallett has called up Springbok prop Pat Cilliers to his squad on Monday to replace the injured Julian Redelinghuys.

Mallett's World XV is set to take on the Springboks in a friendly at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.

Mallett lamented the loss of Redelinghuys, who will miss the encounter after not recovering from a calf strain in time.

The World XV will also be without the services of Schalk Brits, who will instead line up for the Springboks after making Heyneke Meyer's final 36-man squad for the June internationals.

Mallett also added that Wednesday will bring the arrival of five Toulon players who took part in the French Top 14 final at the weekend.
 
"They (the Toulon five) will come to training but they probably won't train, so they will just watch a few of our exit strategies and defence and stuff like that," Mallett told Rugby365's website.
