Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber advised on Tuesday that prop Ox Nche had suffered an injury to his chest at training on Tuesday and was in doubt for Saturday’s opening Castle Lager Rugby Championship clash at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Nche was named in the starting line-up for the clash announced earlier on Tuesday, but the coaches announced that Steven Kitshoff would remain behind in South Africa rather than travelling to New Zealand on Tuesday night as injury cover pending the outcome of Nche’s medical scans.

A further announcement will be made on Wednesday.
