Cape Town - Springbok scrumhalf Ross Cronje will continue his recovery at the Golden Lions after he sustained an ankle injury during the Springboks 37-15 win over Argentina on Saturday.

Springbok team doctor Konrad von Hagen confirmed Cronje will not travel with the squad to Argentina on Wednesday.

He has already been replaced by Jano Vermaak of Western Province.

“We sent Ross for a scan, which showed ligament tear,” said von Hagen.

“We decided it would be better for him to recover at his province in Johannesburg, because we have a short turn-around time for the next match, which also involves a lot of travelling.”

At this point, it is unknown how long the injury will keep Cronje sidelined.
