Injury concern and goodbyes for Cheetahs

In what has become somewhat of a norm, the Cheetahs have again lost players ahead of their second promotion/relegation match against the Kings this weekend.

According to fscheetahs.co.za, flank Lappies Labuschagne will miss the clash with an ankle injury, which will rule him out for about four weeks. That means he will only take to the rugby field again next year, when Super Rugby kicks off in February.

Labuschagne is the sixth loose forward missing from the Cheetah ranks at the moment, and his absence will mean a shift for Francois Uys to the side of the scrum, while being replaced in the second row by Carl Wegner.

Another injury concern, although not specifically ruled out of the clash yet, is Sias Ebersohn, who has to overcome a bit of concussion, and will be allowed to prove his fitness on Wednesday, and if not fit to play will be replaced by Tewis de Bruyn as commander of the back line.

This will be the last match for the Cheetahs for Sias Ebersohn, Andries Strauss and Hendro Scholtz. Ebersohn will be leaving for Australia where he will represent the Western Force in Super Rugby, Andries Strauss is staying in Port Elizabeth following the match this weekend, joining the Kings for their inaugural Super Rugby campaign while Hendro Scholtz will re-retire after getting an emergency call-up from Naka Drotske. Scholtz has been appointed forwards coach at Shimlas, and we wish him all the best.
