Etzebeth expected to return to full training

Eben Etzebeth looks to have recovered from the foot injury that ruled him out of this past weekend’s clash against France, and is expected to make a full return to training this week.

Should the training go well, the number 4 will be up for selection come Saturday’s Scottish test.

An injury concern, however, is eighthman Warren Whiteley, with coach Rassie Eramus saying:

“Warren has a calf injury and I would say he is doubtful for Saturday.”

“Vincent Koch and Frans Malherbe (props) both have some bumps and we will be cautious with them, but I think they will be fit to play.”
