Town - Springbok fullback Wille le Roux is
a doubt for the home Test matches against Australia and New Zealand.
The 29-year-old was instrumental
in his side's 36-34 win
over the All Blacks in Wellington on Saturday despite receiving a yellow card
in the 66th minute.
But Le Roux's availability for
the duration of the Rugby Championship has always been in doubt given that he
is contracted to English club Wasps.
Initially, it had been thought
that Le Roux would play in the three Tests for the Boks during the
Championship, but he has started all four.
With a bye coming up this
weekend, Le Roux is expected to return to his club and play in this Saturday's
clash against Sale Sharks.
It is unclear whether he will
return to South Africa after that.
"It's a tough one to answer
at the moment but you never know what can happen," Le Roux told Netwerk24.
Le Roux added that he thought his
yellow card for a professional foul had cost his side the game.
"When I was sent off, I
thought I had let my team down and that, if we lost, I had cost us the
game," he said.
"Fortunately, it all worked
out ... I owe the guys a beer for that."
