Springbok scrumhalf Cobus Reinach is well on the road to recovery.
Reinach of Montpellier missed last month's 2-1 series win over Wales due to a shoulder injury, but he has started individual and non-contact training, according to Springbok coach Jacques Nianaber.
“He has only returned to individual training now,” Nienaber said at the team’s training base in Mbombela t as they stepped up preparations for the Rugby Championship clash against New Zealand at the Mbombela Stadium.
“He is slowly being introduced back into rugby but not contact yet. He will go through level one contact introduction, move to level two and then level three in the coming weeks.
