Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus said he would take a group of 37 players to Bloemfontein on Sunday for a final camp during which he would finalise his World Cup squad.

"We will choose the final squad of 31 from that group," said Erasmus after his side's 21-18 win over Argentina at Loftus on Saturday.

The Springbok squad for the Rugby World Cup will be named at 15:00 on Monday, August 26.

"There were one or two players that had question marks over them and there were some where we got confirmation and others where we had doubts and things clarified. But we will have a proper sit down tomorrow."

Erasmus also confirmed that two-try hero from saturday, S'bu Nkosi, would be in the final 31.

Erasmus also said he was delighted with the performance of Siya Kolisi, who was starting his first Test of the season.

"We wanted to get Siya off after 30 minutes and see how he would last but with the injury to Marcell Coetzee we had to change our plans," said Erasmus.

"At halftime Siya said he was feeling great and that he wanted to go 70, but then he was struggling after 50 minutes. We’ll work really hard on his conditioning and get him right."
