Cape Town - Springbok skipper Warren Whiteley will know on Monday whether the groin tear that kept him out of Saturday’s final Test against France could impact on him leading the Lions in the business end of Super Rugby or captaining the national team in the Rugby Championship that follows.

Whiteley was withdrawn mere hours before kick-off at Ellis Park on Saturday.

Stormers lock Eben Etzebeth took over the captain's armband, becoming only the 59th Springbok to do so, and led his team to a 35-12 victory - and series whitewash over an outclassed France side.
