Du Toit return imminent

Good news, Sharks fans! It won’t be too much longer until we see the return of Pieter-Steph du Toit to the Sharks engine room.

The young man – recently at the middle of a tug of war which the Sharks ultimately won – tweeted a day or so back that he’s expecting to be back on the field within another two to three weeks. Photos from Sharks training sessions this week would seem to confirm that Steph is very much back “in the thick of things” and even seems to be taking contact, after surgery for a sternum injury sustained during Super Rugby.

The bad news from a Sharks point of view, of course, is that du Toit is unlikely to play much Currie Cup rugby after his return, with Bok coach Heyneke Meyer no doubt planning an almost immediate call-up to the Rugby championship squad for the player, whom he rates highly. Let’s hope that sanity prevails and that Steph is afforded at least a game or two at Currie Cup level to get back into shape before making a long-deserved test debut.

The new for another Sharks lock, Anton Bresler, is less good, it seems, with a return after his shoulder surgery now delayed until the second half of the Currie Cup.
