Injured Boks duo miss Tri-Nations
South Africa's Bakkies Botha
Botha has recently been troubled by a calf injury
Lock Bakkies Botha and centre Jean de Villiers have been ruled out of South Africa's Tri-Nations squad after failing to recover from injuries.

Botha is still recovering from a calf problem while De Villiers picked up a rib injury during last month's first Test against Scotland.

But winger Bryan Habana has overcome a rib injury.

South Africa's first match in the Tri-Nations series will be against Australia in Brisbane on 15 July.

De Villiers will not be replaced in the squad but a decision on Botha's replacement will be made on Thursday.

The Tri-Nations begins on Saturday when New Zealand host Australia in Christchurch.
