Cape Town - Springbok prop Trevor Nyakane was on Tuesday withdrawn from the squad for Saturday’s third Test against Ireland because of injury.

The prop suffered an ankle injury against Ireland in the second Test between the sides last Saturday in Johannesburg. Nyakane was sent for x-rays on Monday, which showed no fracture except for some swelling.

However, further assessment on Tuesday morning revealed that Nyakane will not be ready to be considered for Saturday’s final Test.

A substitution to serve as extra cover for both the loosehead and tighthead positions, will be named in due course.

Nyakane joins No 8 Duane Vermeulen (elbow) and Lood de Jager (calf) on the injured list. All three players have left the Springbok camp.

The Springboks continued their preparations on Tuesday morning with an extended training session at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

South Africa and Ireland meet on Saturday at 17:00 in the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in the deciding third Test.
