McLeod ruled out

Injury news from the Sharks camp is that scrumhalf Charl McLeod has, as expected, been ruled out of Saturday’s game against the Pumas.

The newly-capped Bok went off just 25 minutes into last Saturday’s game against the Bulls, having injured his shoulder and Sharks team doctor Ewoudt van der Linde has confirmed that he will definitely sit out this weekend’s encounter – and possibly also next week’s important away game against the Cheetahs.

Conrad Hoffmann, who took over from McLeod at Loftus and performed well, will move into the starting scrumhalf berth, with Ross Cronje recalled from the club ranks to provide cover off the bench. The latter is suggested to have concluded a deal to join the Lions at the end of the season, meaning that these next two weeks may well be the last time that the popular Michaelhouse boy will play in Sharks colours.

Cronje’s recall to the Currie Cup side couldn’t have come at a worse time, though, for his club side, College Rovers who, having secured their spot at the National Club Championships, will now look to defend that title without one of their key backline playmakers.
