South Africa prop Trevor Nyakane has been ruled out for the remainder of the series against England due to an injury.

The 29-year-old was initially named in the XV for the first Test in Johannesburg which Rassie Erasmus' men went on to lose 42-39 but was a late withdrawal with Wilco Louw replacing him.

Apart from Nyakane, South Africa Rugby has also confirmed that Curwin Bosch, Nizaam Carr, Travis Ismaiel, Jason Jenkins, Ox Noche, Kwagga Smith and Cameron Wright have been released from the squad.

South Africa currently have a 1-0 lead in the three-game series with the other two games to be played in Bloemfontein and Cape Town on 16th and 23rd June respectively.
