It is probably going to be a rebuild, so will be five to six months.’De Jager’s was the third injury suffered by a Springbok lock in quick succession, with RG Snyman injuring his ACL ligament (ruling him out for the rest of the season) and Eben Etzebeth picking up a ribs injury.The Springboks will also be without star flyhalf Handre Pollard for the Rugby Championship after he also tore his ACL while playing for Montpellier in the French Top 14 last weekend.ALSO READ: Last chance for Lions tour ticketsPhoto: Getty Images ‘ Five one-cap Boks that could still represent South AfricaSA Rugby Magazine takes a look at five players who have only represented South Africa once but might do so again in the future.SA Rugby MagUndoLife Exact BrazilGrace Jones Is Now 72 Years Old, This Is Her NowLife Exact Brazil|SponsoredSponsoredUndoCNAHow is life for Cambodian boy linguist after viral fame?CNA|SponsoredSponsoredUndoShop Bras Online | Search AdsTake a Look at These Bra and Panty SetsShop Bras Online | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndoCNACOVID-19 – Latest news and coverageCNA|SponsoredSponsoredUndoLoans | Search AdsGetting a loan in Hong Kong may be easier than you thinkLoans | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndo  313  188 熱門話題對肚腩脂肪感到後悔!試了在萬寧賣的這個後…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Published on September 16, 2020 center_img ‘ SumabisPut Vaseline On Your Eyelashes Overnight, Here’s WhySumabis|SponsoredSponsoredUndo GoGoPeak10 Most Beautiful Cities You Should Visit Once In Your LifetimeGoGoPeak|SponsoredSponsoredUndo From the magazine: Jano Vermaak names his Perfect XVSA Rugby MagUndo ‘ De Jager set for surgery ‘ Shop Bras Online | Search AdsBrilliant Bra and Panty Sets (take a look)Shop Bras Online | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndoWorld Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVSA Rugby MagUndoWatch: Kolbe makes Test players look amateur – Ugo MonyeSA Rugby MagUndoSumabisThe Side Effects of Wearing Socks While Sleeping Might Surprise YouSumabis|SponsoredSponsoredUndo ‘last_img read more
