    The Lions sent out a statement on Wednesday confirming that Kriel would have to undergo another shoulder operation this week.

    "Due to unforeseen circumstances the operation that Jaco Kriel underwent on his shoulder was unsuccessful and needs to be repeated on Thursday, March 8," the statement read. 

    "The Lions Rugby Company will communicate further information as it becomes available without compromising the player's privacy."

    Kriel has 11 Test matches to his name since making his debut against Ireland in Port Elizabeth under Allister Coetzee in 2016.
