D-Day for injured Boks

Cape Town - Johann Muller and Heinrich Brüssow will undergo final fitness tests on Friday before a decision is made on whether they will have recovered sufficiently to take part in the away leg of the Castle Tri-Nations Series. The team departs on Friday evening.

Both players undertook some light running during training on Wednesday but have been given more time to prove their fitness. Muller has an injured hamstring while Brüssow’s recovery from a knee injury is being conservatively managed.

Prop forward Coenie Oosthuizen took a full part in Wednesday’s training, having recovered from an ankle injury.

The Springboks play their first match in the Castle Tri-Nations against Australia in Sydney on July 23.
