Frans Steyn and Jacques Potgieter out of All Blacks game

7:33 am on 2 October 2012

South Africa will be without utility back Francois Steyn and loose forward Jacques Potgieter for their final Rugby Championship match against the All Blacks in Soweto this weekend.

Steyn requires surgery on his injured ankle and Potgieter is struggling with an abdominal strain picked up during a Currie Cup match last weekend.

Loose forward Arno Botha and back Lionel Mapoe have been called up to join the squad in Johannesburg.
