The versatile loose-forward, who missed the 2003 World Cup with a broken arm, said he is not after regular captain John Smit's job and would happily settle for a spot in South Africa's 30-man-squad come September.
"I've already set my targets, I'm trying to make it into a World Cup squad and I believe the best interests for South Africa is for me to do that under John Smit," Skinstad said.
"I'm certainly not interested in vying for any (permanent) leadership positions … (I'm) not interested in doing anything else but doing the best we can away from home so that those (regular) guys have got a better opportunity to win a World Cup."
