Kirchner ruled out
Johannesburg - A knee cartilage injury has ruled Springbok fullback Zane Kirchner out of Saturday's Test against the All Blacks in Johannesburg.
Kirchner had a scan on his left knee on Monday after sustaining an injury during an Absa Currie Cup fixture last weekend. He has been withdrawn by the Springbok medical team.
His progress will be monitored and a decision on his availability for the remainder of the Vodacom Tri-Nations will be made at a later date.
