Bad to worse as Botes goes down too

The Sharks revealed a shock double-injury blow at their Tuesday press conference, with Jacques Botes likely to join Jean Deysel on the sidelines for up to a month.

Deysel was duly confirmed out for anything up to a month, as the result of an ankle injury sustained in the first quarter of Saturday’s match. He will go for a further scan on Thursday to confirm the prognosis, but for now it’s clear he certainly won’t feature against the Brumbies this weekend.

Botes has apparently sustained a cracked wrist and will probably also miss out on the next four weeks of action.

That brings the Sharks’ loose-forward injury tally to four, with Willem Alberts and Keegan Daniel both confirmed as pre-season casualties.

The faint light at the end of this tunnel, though, comes in the form of a very slight chance that Daniel may make an unexpected return to the side this weekend.

More on this as it develops.
