Injured Jaco Kriel to return home
September 12, 2017
Springbok flank Jaco Kriel will return home to South Africa after a shoulder injury has ruled him out of Saturday’s vital Castle Lager Rugby Championship Test against the All Blacks in Auckland.

The industrious flanker complained of a shoulder problem after the drawn match in Perth last Saturday. His condition did not improve since then and he was sent for a scan on Monday afternoon in Auckland.

The scan revealed that Kriel, who has formed a formidable loose trio combination with Siya Kolisi and Uzair Cassiem in recent weeks, had sustained a labrum tear. Springbok team management has confirmed that no replacement will be called as the team has sufficient loose forward cover.

Meanwhile, prop Wilco Louw arrived in Auckland late on Monday night as replacement for the injured Coenie Oosthuizen, who returned home with a broken arm following the drawn Test in Perth.
