Steph is BACK!

The Sharks have released a medical report ahead of the second round of Currie Cup games. While details on return dates are, for the most part, sketchy, one thing is clear: Pieter-Steph du Toit is ready for selection this weekend.

Du Toit played a big role for the Sharks in Super Rugby this year, despite his youth, but has been on the sidelines for roughly three months as the result of a sternal injury. While it’s widely anticipated that he’ll be called up to Heyneke Meyer’s Springbok squad for the home leg of the Rugby championship, for the time being, Steph is fit and available for the Sharks; his return couldn’t come at a better time, given Marco Wentzel’s unfortunate injury.

The other good news is that whatever forced Cobus Reinach from the field early on against Province on Saturday clearly isn’t serious enough to put him in doubt for this weekend’s trip to Kimberley; his name doesn’t feature on the list at all, meaning he’s presumably fit for selection.

S’bura Sithole is “almost ready for selection”, which I take to mean he’ll be back in another week or two; Anton Bresler however remains on the injured list but is “coming along nicely” after undergoing a secondary procedure a few weeks ago. Others whose recovery is on track, but with no return date set, are Francois Steyn and Paul Jordaan; we believe the former should play again this season, while the latter definitely won’t.
