Disaster for Springboks as injury crisis worsens
Disaster appears to have struck again for the Springboks in their injury crisis as another of their top players appears to be potentially out.
Springboks winger and Toulouse Superstar looks like he could be out for club and country in worrying images for the fans of the rainbow nation.
Kolbe, who had a brilliant start to the match, appeared to be nursing a nasty injury early in the second half.
He scored two tries early in the game!

However, fans appeared to be worried as the Springbok star was subbed off before he could complete his hat trick for the team in red.
There were worrying signs as the 26-year-old started limping around the pitch.

He received strapping immediately on the injury, however, they still had to take him off shortly after despite how well he was playing.
The Springbok injury crisis is in full swing and it is threatening to throw their dominance in International rugby down the drain.
Who’s injured for South Africa?
RG Snyman 6-9 months out
The star signing for Munster tore his ACL in his knee just minutes into his debut match for the men from Limerick. Snyman was one of the key young players for South Africa in the World Cup and this injury will be a bitter blow for the team.
Eben Etzebeth 3-6 weeks out
Eben Etzebeth wasn’t long back in the Top 14 for Toulon when he came off with what looked to be a painful rib injury. He came off after just 12 minutes when he came on as a substitute against La Rochelle. Springbok injury crisis!
Lood de Jager – 12 weeks
The Sale Sharks signing was seen walking off early in September with another shoulder injury. He had issues with it during the World Cup and it appears to have reared it’s head again in the Gallagher Premiership!
Someone noted that the injury looks like a shoulder dislocation which means we could see Lood out of the game from 6-18 weeks depending on the severity of the injury.
