6:00 am on 12 June 2013

The South African flanker Francois Louw has been released from the Springbok squad for Saturday's Test against Scotland to allow him to prepare for his wedding on Sunday.

The Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer decided it would be best for the team and Louw to focus on his wedding day.

Meyer says he wanted to give the loose forward the entire week off, but Louw insisted on training with the squad this week.
