JOHANNESBURG – Springbok wing Aphiwe Dyantyi has returned to the Golden Lions in Johannesburg where he will undergo rehabilitation for a hamstring injury, the Springbok management announced on Monday.
The injury has ruled Dyantyi out of the start of the Springboks’ Rugby Championship campaign, which kicks off at Ellis Park in Johannesburg against Australia on Saturday.
The Bok speedster, who won the World Rugby Breakthrough Player of the Year Award in 2018, picked up the injury during training on Friday and will consult a specialist later on Monday to discuss treatment options and a possible timeframe of return to action.
Big injury setback for the Boks, currently training for their @SanzarTRC opener this weekend in Johannesburg. 🚑— Springboks (@Springboks) July 15, 2019
