Springbok back rower Ryan Kankowski could miss out on representing South Africa at the upcoming World Cup Sevens in Moscow due to niggling injuries.

Kankowski played a minimal role during the South Africa's triumphant campaign at last weekend's  Roma Sevens and according to Blitzbokke coach Paul Treu it's touch and go whether he will be included in the World Cup squad.

"It was tough for Ryan," Treu told Die Burger newspaper.

He picked up a few injuries and didn't play a lot of games (in Italy). It was his second injury since he joined us. So it will be tough for him (to be included).

"(But) while he was on the field he was very good."

The Blitzbokke won the Roma tournament by beating invitational side Heliantide 59-5 in the final on Saturday.

The World Cup Sevens takes place from June 28 to June 30.
