The Springboks have confirmed that a broken jaw has ruled influential winger Cheslin Kolbe out of action until September.
Kolbe sustained the knock during South Africa’s 30-14 win against Wales in Cape Town on 16 July.
As a result, Kolbe has been omitted from the revised Bok squad for the Rugby Championship, which begins for the world champions against the All Blacks on 6 August in Mbombela.
They will face the same opposition a week later in Johannesburg before embarking on their tour which includes two games against the Wallabies and one against Argentina. They will then return to South Africa to face Argentina in Durban at the end of September.
