Cape Town - Jean de Villiers has rejoined the Springbok Rugby World Cup squad in London in an advisory capacity.

De Villiers, who was forced out of the tournament after fracturing his jaw against Samoa, underwent successful surgery in Cape Town last week.

He subsequently announced his retirement from international rugby and now hopes to provide valuable input off the field.

The Boks tackle the USA in their final Pool B game at London’s Olympic Stadium on Wednesday (kick-off 17:45 SA time).
