Du Preez ruled out of Boks' European Tour

Wednesday, November 01, 2017

CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - South Africa loose forward Jean-Luc du Preez has been ruled out of the Springboks' European Tour with a fracture to his ankle.

The Sharks flank, who has 10 caps, had a scan on Monday after limping out of the domestic Currie Cup final against Western Province on Sunday.

No decision has been made on a replacement, South African Rugby said. It is the latest blow among the loose forwards for coach Allister Coetzee, with regular skipper Warren Whiteley and Jaco Kriel also ruled out through injury. Du Preez's twin brother Daniel, who is uncapped and plays at number eight, will tour with the Boks as they face Ireland on November 11, and then France, Italy and Wales on consecutive Saturdays thereafter.
