Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus says the ankle injury sustained by Eben Etzebeth during Saturday’s Test at Twickenham ‘looks pretty bad’.
Etzebeth limped off the field early in the second half of the Boks’ 12-11 defeat.
Erasmus said the lock, who missed most of the 2018 season because of a shoulder injury, would probably be ruled out of the rest of the end-of-year tour.
‘Eben looks pretty bad. He is out definitely for next week and maybe the tour. The way he is walking doesn’t look great, it looks like an ankle and will be a while before he is playing again.’
The Boks have Tests against France, Scotland and Wales to come over the next three weeks.
