The players’ provinces were contacted last week to secure their release for the final Castle Tri-Nations Test of the season.

The trio all appeared in the first two Tests of the series and will resume training with the squad in Port Elizabeth on Monday. Lambie appeared at flyhalf and fullback in Sydney and Wellington respectively while Sharks team-mate, Mvovo, made two starts on the left wing.

The Vodacom Blue Bulls’ Ralepelle appeared twice as a replacement hooker.

The Springbok medical team will provide an update on the squad’s injury status on Monday but confirmed today that reports that captain John Smit had torn elbow ligaments and would miss the Rugby World Cup were completely inaccurate.
