Cape Town - There was good news for the Springboks on Monday morning as scrumhalf Faf de Klerk and fullback Johan Goosen were both declared fit ahead of this weekend's Rugby Championship clash against the All Blacks in Christchurch.
Both players were sent for scans following Saturday's 23-17 loss to Australia in Brisbane - Goosen for a chest injury and De Klerk for an ankle strain.
"They are both good to go for our training this week," Bok coach Allister Coetzee said from Christchurch on Monday.
"As a group we know where we have to improve, and that’s where the focus are at this moment."
Goosen has been backed at fullback by Coetzee during the Rugby Championship, but he also offers an option at flyhalf where Elton Jantjies continues to struggle.
De Klerk, meanwhile, has been Coetzee's first-choice scrumhalf all year but he was not overly impressive against the Wallabies.
Rudy Paige and Francois Hougaard are the other options for Coetzee at No 9.
