Cape Town - Team South Africa has announced three withdrawals for the team set to compete at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on Australia's Gold Coast from next week.

These changes will affect two sporting codes - athletics and netball.

Track sprinter Carina Horn is injured and will not be replaced, Team SA said on Saturday.

In the netball team, goal-shooters Lenize Potgieter and Danelle Lochner are both out with ankle injuries.

Siggy Burger has replaced Potgieter, while a replacement for Lochner has yet to be named.

The SA netball team play their opening match of the Games against Jamaica on Friday, April 6.
