Spingbok emblemBryan Habana was forced out of the Springbok tour of Britain and Ireland on Tuesday because of a hand injury.

Habana fractured a bone in his left hand during morning practice and will return to South Africa shortly. His place in Saturday’s team is taken by Lwazi Mvovo – who is promoted from the bench – while the experienced Adi Jacobs joins the replacements.

Habana suffered the injury during a defensive drill when he fell awkwardly on his hand after tackling Morne Steyn.

The injury reduces the tour squad to 27 players. An announcement on replacements will be issued in due course.

The revised Springbok team is:
