Ryan Kankowski and Ashley Johnson have both been released from the Springbok squad for this weekend’s test against Australia in Durban, given that the players they were covering for, Danie Rossouw and Pierre Spies, have both been passed fit.

Johnson was already named this morning in the Cheetahs team for this weekend’s game against the Lions, while Kankowski was not in the Sharks lineup to play Western Province in Cape Town on Friday night.

It is not currently clear whether the Sharks will change their team to include Kankowski, but the smart money would be on the Bok starting at number 8, with Keegan Daniel moving to flank and Marcell Coetzee or Jacques Botes reverting to the bench.

  • If Kanko starts then the flanks will have to be Daniel and Coetzee, surely. I can’t see a Botes, Daniel and Kanko combination working.

  • @rekinek (Comment 9) : Don’t do that to yourself. Just delete the recording so you don’t ever get into the temptation. Remember, you can never “unsee” something.

    Not specifically referring to Kanko, of course.
