Juan Smith the only injury concern for Boks

5:50 am on 24 August 2010

Flanker Juan Smith is the only injury concern in the Springbok camp following the weekend's last-gasp 22-29 Tri-Nations rugby loss to the All Blacks at Soccer City in Soweto.

Smith has an abdominal muscle strain sustained in the first half of the match and did not take part in training yesterday.

However the Springboks are confident Smith will recover in time to be considered for selection for this weekend's clash with the Wallabies.

The team will be announced tomorrow with the Sharks loose forward Ryan Kankowski joining the squad as a precaution.
