According to Springbok coach, Heyneke Meyer, the extent of the injury is unclear, but early indications are not good.
“He will probably miss the rest of the season,” Meyer indicated.
A replacement will be called in the next day or so, he said.
The Springboks will travel to Mendoza with Adriaan Strauss and Tiaan Liebenberg, who joined the squad late in the week following an injury to Chiliboy Ralepelle.
“We have some hookers injured, but will not panic,” Meyer said.
