The national rugby body said the Western Stormers utility back suffered a knee ligament injury in a weekend Super 15 match and will be sidelined for up to six weeks.

His place in the 36-man squad goes to Golden Lions fly-half Marnitz Boshoff, the second highest scorer in the Super 15 this season with 170 points.

South Africa play a World XV in Cape Town, Wales in Durban and Nelspruit and Scotland in Port Elizabeth on consecutive Saturdays from June 7.
