Two injury cover additions to Springbok squad

6:13 am on 12 July 2011

Prop CJ van der Linde and the uncapped Sharks lock Gerhard Mostert were added as cover to the South African rugbyquad preparing in Johannesburg for the away legs of the Tri-Nation.

A decision on their participation will be taken later in the week.

Van der Linde was called in for further medical assessments on a groin injury that had seen the 69-Test veteran overlooked for inclusion in the Springboks' Preliminary World Cup squad.

Mostert has been added as cover for Johann Muller who has been troubled by a hamstring injury.
