    Cape Town - There was welcome news for the Stormers and Springboks on Wednesday when lock Eben Etzebeth was spotted training at Newlands.

    Etzebeth, 22, has been out of action since injuring his ankle playing for the Springboks against France in Paris last November.

    According to Die Burger's website, he did some slight training at Newlands on Wednesday and could be back in action within a week or two.

    This means Etzebeth could feature for the Springboks in the June Test window when they play four games back-to-back.

    The Boks will start with game against the World XV at Newlands on June 7, followed by two Tests against Wales (Durban, June 14 and Nelspruit, June 21) and one against Scotland (Port Elizabeth, June 28).
