Good results for Le Roux
Springbok fullback, Willie Le Roux, underwent an X-ray on Monday evening, after taking a knock to the face in the End of Year Tour match against England in Twickenham on Saturday.
There were doubts whether Le Roux would participate in the match against Italy this coming weekend, however, the scan revealed that he has no fracture in his cheekbone.
"We’ll manage Willie during training this week but he should be available to face Italy," team doctor, Craig Roberts said.
Prop, Jannie du Plessis, will not be taking part in the match against Italy after injuring his hamstring in the 31-28 victory. His place will be taken by Xerox Golden Lions prop, Ruan Dreyer.
South Africa will be facing Italy at the Stadio Euganeo Stadium in Padova on Saturday and will next take on Wales, for their last match of the tour, at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on the 29th of November.
