Vermeulen is seeing a specialist in Cape Town to check his ankle, but the coaching staff is concerned.
Rassie is suggesting Jasper Weise may play at 8. (but not one of the creatine twins).
Jasper is as strong as an ox. Looks like a more powerful version of CJ Stander.
Good thing he is getting capped by the Boks, so he is no longer eligible for England or the Lions. His skills look solid but perhaps more like a power player.
Marcell Coetzee will probably be called up to replace Vermeulen in the squad.
