South Africa's director of rugby Rassie Erasmus has resumed taking pot shots at the British and Irish Lions on Twitter after posting footage to highlight what he describes as "reckless and dangerous" play.

The clip comes from South Africa's 22-17 defeat in Cape Town on Saturday and sees Ali Price tackle Cheslin Kolbe close to the touchline before Mako Vunipola picks the Springboks wing up off the floor.

"Cheslin is obviously played in the air and clearly not direct into touch!! More importantly for youngsters watching this clip!!!!" former Munster coach Erasmus tweeted.

"Please never move or touch an injured player on the ground, its reckless and dangerous!"

It comes the day after Erasmus retweeted a post from an anonymous user showing some "questionable calls" by the officials against the world champions.

As part of the retweet, Erasmus adds: "Thanks. This is rugby - sometimes calls go for you and other times they dont".

In a twist, the anonymous poster named 'Jaco Johan' uses the same type of graphics - a yellow circle - to highlight the alleged foul play as Erasmus does on his official account.

Meanwhile, the Lions' Finn Russell could be in contention for the second Test after recovering from his Achilles injury.
Russell suffered a small tear to the tendon against the Sharks on 7 July but was kept on tour in the hope that he would heal in time to play a role in the series against the Springboks.

With Dan Biggar undergoing return to play protocols after being concussed in Saturday's victory, placing his ongoing availability at fly-half in doubt, Russell's return to fitness is well timed.

"All being well, Dan should be available to train on Thursday and Finn will start to train with us today," defence coach Steve Tandy said.

"Finn could potentially be in the mix, we'll see how he pulls up. I know he's been reacting well to training."
