Following the injury to Jaco Kriel, Nizaam Carr will remain with the squad following the Barbarians game.

Jannie du Plessis has withdrawn from the Springbok squad for personal reasons, and has been replaced with Lourens Adriaanse. Jannie’s wife is set to give birth early November.

Both players will already be with the squad for the Barbarians game.

The Boks leave for London on Friday evening.

  • Reverse Carr will be a great addition if the Boks want to continue going backwards, other than that he offers nothing. Not even first choice a WP. Adriaanse is a great asset. Better scrummer than Koch and in the UK you need a solid scrum.

  • @Mutley (Comment 1) : Is kriel injured or does AC have a problem with him. He was one of the few real assets we had in that front row.

  • What is this I hear of Franco Smith being the assistant to the kicking coach? The conspiracy theorist in me says that he will be very much involved in improving the backline, but the powers do not want to demotivate current backline coaches and want them to get credit for any improvement.

  • @JD (Comment 4) :

    Really not sure what the thinking was behind playing Jannie?

    Adriaanse was in the setup, so why not give him the opportunity over there as well..

  • Jannie’s withdrawal is strange, the guy is living in Europe he’s a doctor ,so why should he withdraw over the fact that his wife is going to give birth.Its not as if he is going to be on the other side of the world.
    If that was the case why did he accept in the first place.
    Something about the Bethlehem mafia and the Boks,doesn’t ring true.
    Why no Frans Steyn,and if Bizzie was fit do you think he would have got an invite..
