Port Elizabeth - Sharks prop Coenie Oosthuizen will join the
Springboks here on Wednesday as an extra front row cover following the
withdrawal of Trevor Nyakane, who is struggling with an ankle injury.
The experienced Oosthuizen was called up to the Bok camp to
cover the loosehead and tighthead positions.
Nyakane hurt his ankle last Saturday in the Boks’ win over
Ireland in the second Test played in Johannesburg.
The 27-year-old Oosthuizen has earned 23 Springboks caps to
date and recently played for the SA ‘A’ side in their two-match series against
the England Saxons.
The Springboks have a training free day on Wednesday, apart
from variety of #LoveRugby activations in the morning.
The Bok team to face Ireland in the deciding third Test this
Saturday at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, will be named on Thursday.
