Rugby Union: World cup 2003 - Springboks play down Krige woe.
Straeuli insisted Krige, who sits out SOUTH AFRICA'S Pool C opener against Uruguay tomorrow, will be fit for the Subiaco Oval showdown with England next week despite suffering ``hamstring cramp''.
Captaincy duties fall to Joost van der Westhuizen.
Straeuli claimed Krige's problems were ``not serious'' and said: ``He will definitely be ready to play next week.''
The Springboks refused to respond to the latest allegations of racism in their camp.
Uruguay,meanwhile,are determined to relish the occasion.
``There are very few opportunities in your life when you get to play a great team like South Africa,'' said Uruguay skipper Diego Aguirre.
