Cape Town - Springbok prop Jannie du Plessis has not recovered from a hamstring injury and will miss their final tour game against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday.

Du Plessis sustained the injury against England at Twickenham on November 15 and missed this past weekend's game against Italy in Padova.

Saturday's clash at Millennium Stadium kicks off at (16:30 SA time).
