Boks summon reinforcements

Stormers fullback Gio Aplon and Bulls prop Dean Greyling have both received belated call-ups to the Springbok squad, ahead of Saturday’s second test against England in Johannesburg.

Aplon, who was a surprise exclusion from Heyneke Meyer’s group of 32, comes in as cover for Zane Kirchner, who picked up a knee strain during the first half of the opening test win and will not be considered for Saturday’s match. Greyling will cover for Coenie Oosthuizen, who has some neck stiffness and will go for a scan tomorrow.

It’s not yet clear whether Oosthuizen has definitively been ruled out of the second test; the assumption at this stage is that Greyling’s call-up is precautionary.

Pat Lambie should start at fullback given Kirchner’s withdrawal.
