The Springboks levelled the series with a 32-26 victory in Johannesburg on Saturday but the win came at a cost as Nyakane suffered an ankle injury and joined Patrick Lambie, Duane Vermeulen and Lood de Jager on the sidelines.

Oosthuizen has won 23 caps for South Africa and will come into contention for Saturday's decider in Port Elizabeth.
