Boks fully fit for Wales Test

12:03 pm on 31 May 2010

The Springboks will take a fully fit squad to Cardiff for their one-off Test against wales next weekend.

There were a few minor scares after the Super 14 final between the Bulls and the Stormers with lock Andries Bekker (foot) and centre Juan de Jongh (bruised thigh) undergoing scans.

However the Springbok medical team is optimistic that they'll be ready to play this weekend.

Three of the five overseas-based players in the squad - Frans Steyn, Butch James and BJ Botha - assembled in Johannesburg whilst CJ van der Linde and Joe van Niekerk will join up with the squad on arrival in the UK.
