Trio called up to Boks squad

2011-08-15 00:00

TWO Sharks, the versatile Pat Lambie and wing Lwazi Mvovo, along with Blue Bulls hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle have been added to the Boks squad for Saturday’s Tri-Nations Test against New Zealand in Port Elizabeth.

The players’ provinces have been contacted to secure their release for the Boks’ final Tri-Nations Test of the season. The trio all appeared in the first two Tests and will train with the squad in PE on Monday.

Lambie appeared at flyhalf and fullback in Sydney and Wellington respectively, while Mvovo made two starts on the left wing. Ralepelle appeared twice as a replacement hooker.

Team doctor Craig Roberts confirmed reports that captain John Smit had torn elbow ligaments and would miss the Rugby World Cup were completely inaccurate.
