Injured Christian Leali’ifano is one of six players who have been released from a trimmed Wallabies squad ahead of Saturday’s clash with the Boks.
Leali’ifano (shoulder) and Scott Sio (adductor) will return to Australia to undergo injury rehabilitation, while Jack Maddocks and Rob Valetini have been released for club duties this weekend.
Tom Robertson suffered an ankle injury at training on Tuesday, with Marika Koroibete also flying home to be with his family after the birth of his second child.
Waratahs prop Harry Johnson-Holmes will now join the squad in Johannesburg.
