South Africa winger Cheslin Kolbe is expected to make a comeback in the final round clash of the Rugby Championship against New Zealand to be played at Cbus Super Stadium on Saturday.

Kolbe has missed the last three games in the competition for the Springboks after sustaining a leg injury during a training session following the team's arrival for the Queensland leg of the tournament.

Speaking to the media, South Africa assistant coach Deon Davids said Kolbe has resumed training and is set to be available for the selection for the weekend's encounter.

However, Davids said Marco van Staden, who impressed during the game against New Zealand in the previous round is sidelined with an injury.

“The only player injured at this stage is Marco van Staden. He sustained ashoulder injury and didn’t take part in training today.

"The rest of the players were all able to train on Monday and all of them are in consideration for selection this week.”

Meanwhile, lock RG Snyman, who made a comeback for Munster in the recently concluded United Rugby Championship game against Sharks is expected to return to the squad for the end of the year tour.

“RG is still part of the wider squad, but at this stage we haven’t spoken about him rejoining because we are just focused on ending the Rugby Championship on a high.”
