Faf de Klerk under injury cloud, Springboks call up Jaden Hendrikse

Sharks scrumhalf Jaden Hendrikse has earned a maiden – and surprise – call-up to the Springbok squad ahead of the third and final Test against the British & Irish Lions.

This comes amid injury doubts around first-choice No 9 Faf de Klerk.

De Klerk, who started both the first and second Tests against the British & Irish Lions, suffered what appeared to be a leg injury after a clearance kick in the second half of the second Test at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday

The 29-year-old was shortly afterwards replaced by Herschel Jantjies.

Sharks chief executive Eduard Coetzee confirmed on social media on Sunday that Jaden Hendrikse has been drafted into the Springbok squad.

It appears unlikely that Hendrikse will play in the final Test – even if De Klerk fails to overcome his injury.

The Springboks still have Herschel Jantjies and Cobus Reinach in the squad.

Hendrikse, 21, was red-carded in the Sharks’ second match against the British & Irish Lions for elbowing Liam Williams.

He was handed a three-match ban (reduced from six weeks) but has served that time by missing Currie Cup matches against the Pumas, Bulls and Cheetahs.
