The talented pivot is set to be replaced in the last leg of the side’s four-week United Kingdom tour by veteran Morne Steyn who is making a trip in the opposite direction to join the side in Wales, as reported by The South African website.

The experienced Springbok, who was recently on national duty during the Rugby Championship and British & Irish Lions tour, will be a boost for the Bulls, who face Scottish giants Edinburgh Rugby this weekend.
