South Africa have been forced
to delay naming their team to play Australia in the
Tri-Nations on Saturday because of injuries and illness,
Springbok coach Peter de Villiers said on Tuesday.
Number eight Pierre Spies (groin) and utility forward Danie
Rossouw (stomach virus) missed training on Monday but did take
part in Tuesday's session.
"We need a little time to confirm one or two positions and
assess a couple of the players," De Villiers said in a
"Both Pierre and Danie ran today but we'll wait and see if
there was any reaction," he added.
South Africa will now name their team on Thursday when
Australia will also announce their side.
