WILLIE HILLS, the South African forward, will miss the rest of his team's tour of Australia after being advised to fly home for surgery on torn knee ligaments.

The Northern Transvaal prop was injured in the third minute of South Africa's 19-12 win over the world champions on Saturday in the first of three Tests.

The Springboks team manager, Jannie Engelbrecht, said Transvaal's Heinrich Rogers has been called up as a replacement. Rogers flies to Australia tomorrow with the Natal full-back Andre Joubert, who replaces Theo van Rensburg after the Transvaal full-back suffered a hernia in Saturday's game.
