The following from News 24:-

“Scotland back-row Magnus Bradbury has been handed a seat on the plane to the Rugby World Cup in Japan after teammate Jamie Ritchie suffered a facial injury.

Ritchie will remain in Scotland while the squad fly out to Japan on Monday but could still make the event, which starts later this month.

The Edinburgh flanker suffered a facial injury during Friday's final warm-up win over Georgia at Murrayfield.

The Scottish Rugby Union said Bradbury would travel as "precautionary injury cover".

"Ritchie sustained a facial injury in the national team's 36-9 win over Georgia," it said in a statement, adding that Bradbury would remain in Scotland for specialist assessment.

Ritchie was the most serious of five injury concerns to come from the game, with the other four players set to travel.

Lock Ben Toolis and full-back Blair Kinghorn both suffered head knocks while Blade Thomson and Jonny Gray, in his first run out of the warm-up series, experienced hamstring issues.

Scotland's first match at the World Cup is against Ireland on September 22.”

Looking at the game on Friday I hope that Erasmus wakes up and get a competent Willemse  as a cover for Pollard.   Steyn was totally defective on Friday and is not a flyhalf's arse.- perhaps he is one.   He was totally hopeless as  expected and there is no chance he would improve,

Willemse couldn't even crack 10 for the Stormers, get real Muck.
