Cape Town - It's been a week of uncertainty over player availability for Wales ahead of their Test against the Springboks in Cardiff on Saturday.

Lock Jake Ball and loose forward Justin Tipuric have already been ruled out with injury, but there was also some good news for coach Warren Gatland ahead of the last Test of the year. 

According to the Wales Online website, scrumhalf Rhys Webb and centre Scott Williams both look like making full recoveries despite picking up injuries in last weekend's 33-18 loss to the All Blacks. 

Webb was removed in the opening stages of that knock with what looked a serious head knock while Williams was taken off in the second half with an ankle problem. 

The website referred to Webb's recovery as "particularly remarkable" given how hard his head hit the turf and how groggy he looked afterwards. 

Both Wales and the Boks are expected to name their sides on Thursday. 

Kick-off on Saturday is at 16:30 (SA time)
