Chris Dry will replace the injured Philip Snyman for this weekend's Singapore Sevens.
Blitzboks coach Neil Powell has taken the precautionary measure to rest Snyman after he took a knock during the team's Cup semi-final defeat in Hong Kong last weekend.
'Player welfare will always come first and Philip is an important player for us,' Powell commented. 'We have a willing and able replacement in Chris, who will bring massive experience and ability to the team, so the call was made with that in mind.'
The Springboks Sevens team will play Scotland, Russia and Kenya in Pool C of the Singapore event.
