Springbok flanker Arno Botha coming off

Knee injury: Arno Botha

The Springboks will be without loose forward Arno Botha for at least eight weeks after the Bulls player suffered a knee injury in Nelspruit on Saturday.

Botha came off in the first minute of the match, which did not help the team's cause, although Meyer was proud of the way Siya Kolisi played.

"We have lost Arno for at least eight weeks, so it is a pity, but Siya really took his changes well. We were tested out there today, this was a proper test match," Meyer said after his side's 30-17 victory.
