Bok blow as wing Dyantyi ruled out of Rugby Championship opener



South Africa have been dealt an injury blow, ahead of their Rugby Championship opener against Australia at Ellis Park on Saturday, after wing Aphiwe Dyantyi picked up a hamstring injury in training.

Dyantyi will see a specialist later on Monday to discuss a rehabilitation plan, after which a timeframe for a return to action will be known, but it seems likely he will also miss the trip to Wellington to meet New Zealand on July 27.

No replacement will be named for the 2018 World Rugby Breakthrough Player of the Year as there is sufficient cover in the squad, according to a statement from the Boks.
