Curse of jersey 13 strikes again

The Mercury’s Mike Greenaway has revealed that Sharks centre JP Pietersen will require surgery after sustaining a groin injury against the Western Force.

Pietersen has been asked to perform an emergency midfield role after serious injuries to both Tim Whitehead and Paul Jordaan, but seems have himself succumbed to the curse of the Sharks number 13 jersey. He will apparently undergo surgery tomorrow and is expected to play no further part in the Super Rugby campaign; we assume this means he’s out of contention for the springboks for the June incoming tours as well.

With the Sharks squad now completely devoid of options in the position, it’s looking likely that Tukkies loan player Piet Lindeque might finally be afforded a start in his favoured position, after only being used on the wing to date. With Marius Joubert also injured, after breaking his hand in the Vodacom Cup, the Sharks would need to look to the likes of the untried Heimar Williams and Tyler Fisher as midfield cover off the bench.
