Springbok fly-half Patrick Lambie will undertake a mandatory one week rest and if he is asymptomatic following the prescribed resting period.

Then he will be managed according to the World Rugby Return to Play Protocol.

Dr Konrad von Hagen, the Springbok medical doctor, confirmed on Sunday the Bok fly-half will rest the coming week and he will be monitored by the Bok medical team. 

The team doctor said even though the player’s x-rays showed no abnormality, Lambie will however undergo further scans as a precaution.

Lambie was injured in a tackle that saw Ireland flanker CJ Stander being red-carded for dangerous play in the first half of the match, won 26-20 by Ireland. 

A decision on a replacement for Lambie will be made in due course.

Meanwhile, Dr Von Hagen said the rest of the Bok players are in good health. 

“They are all fine, with just your normal bumps and bruises. Apart from Patrick, the full squad will be training on Monday in Johannesburg,” Von Hagen said in an official SA Rugby press release.
