Injured Springbok wing Aphiwe Dyantyi is back in training with the Golden Lions, but is only expected to be fit in three weeks’ time.

He returned to the Lions to complete his rehabilitation but no further updates were given regarding his progress. Dyantyi is in a race against time to be fit for the World Cup after sustaining a hamstring strain during a Bok training session on 12 July.

He has since missed South Africa’s title-winning Rugby Championship campaign as well as the first half of the Lions’ Currie Cup campaign.

However it is believed that Dyanti has returned to training, but will only be able to participate in full-contact exercises within the next two weeks. If Dyanti regains full fitness and a greenlight within the expected timeframe, the Lions will use him according to the Springboks management orders.

Although given the time, he should not be rushed and therefore his recovery should be managed. Meanwhile, the Lions are stressing over the availability of at least seven other players ahead of their encounter against the Sharks on Friday. Centres Jan-Louis la Grange and Manni Rass both sustained head knocks and are following the return-to-play instruction for concussion programme.

Loose forward Vincent Tshituka and wing Stean Pienaar both low-grade ACL injuries while props Johannes Jonker and Jacobie Adriaanse both sustained calf strains as well as Cyle Brink are all crocked and will undergo fitness tests later in the week to determine their availability for selection.


  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog
    and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be
    greatly appreciated. Cheers

  2. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
    seems as though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos
    to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to

  3. Right here is the perfect site for anyone who wants to understand
    this topic. You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a brand new spin on a subject that has been written about for years.
    Great stuff, just wonderful!

  4. Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after
    browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!

  5. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is
    wonderful blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

  6. I simply could not go away your website before suggesting that I actually loved the usual information a person supply for your guests? Is gonna be back incessantly to check up on new posts

  7. Right at the present it sounds like BlogEngine is the finest blogging platform available right straight away. (from what I ave read) Is that what you are by on your blog?

  8. Good day! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say
    I really enjoy reading your blog posts. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same topics?
    Thanks for your time!

  9. I would like to add when you do not already have got an insurance policy or else you do not take part in any group insurance, chances are you’ll well benefit from seeking assistance from a health insurance professional. Self-employed or individuals with medical conditions generally seek the help of one health insurance dealer. Thanks for your text.
