Former World Player of the Year Pieter-Steph du Toit has been ruled out of South Africa's opening Test with Wales on Saturday in Pretoria.

Du Toit, 29, is still recovering from shoulder surgery, but is expected to be back for the second and third Tests in Bloemfontein and Cape Town.

It is a second back-row blow for the Springboks, with number eight Duane Vermeulen already missing.

The Springboks will announce their side on 28 June.
