Wilco Louw replaces injured Coenie Oosthuizen

Springbok prop Coenie Oosthuizen suffered a broken arm in Saturday’s enthralling 23-23 draw between the Springboks and the Wallabies in Perth and he will be replaced by uncapped Wilco Louw of the DHL Western Province.

Oosthuizen sustained the injury in the second half of the thrilling encounter which ended in a draw after both sides scored two converted tries and three penalties each.

He will visit a specialist in Durban on his return to South Africa.

Louw is due to join the Springbok squad on Monday evening in Auckland.
