Chavhanga sent home

Springbok wing Tonderai Chavhanga has been released from the national squad training camp in Bloemfontein.

The speedster joined the training camp with an unresolved right groin muscle tear, which requires further treatment and rehabilitation, an SA Rugby statement said.

He will undergo immediate medical treatment and rehabilitation under supervision of his provincial team’s medical staff in Cape Town.

Bryan Habana (ankle sprain) and Bakkies Botha (lower limb muscle injury) were both examined by the Springbok medical team.

Both players are receiving medical care and rehabilitation and should resume training on successful completion of a series of fitness tests.
