Cape Town - Experienced flyhalf Morne Steyn is set to join the Springbok squad as injury cover for Pat Lambie, a report indicates.

Springbok team management confirmed on Sunday that the Sharks pivot will rest the coming week and will be monitored by the medical team.

Team doctor Konrad von Hagen said even though Lambie’s x-rays showed no abnormality, he will however undergo further scans as a precaution.

Lambie was injured in a tackle that saw Irish flank CJ Stander being red-carded for dangerous play in the first half of the first Test at Newlands on Saturday.

The Springboks said a decision on a replacement for Lambie will be made in due course, but according to Afrikaans newspaper, Rapport, Steyn has already been informed that he must join up with the team.

The 31-year-old Steyn, who boasts 60 Test caps, currently plies his trade at French club Stade Francais.
