Front row woes for Sharks

Beast Mtawarira has confirmed via Twitter that while his neck injury is not as serious as at first feared, he’s still in no danger whatsoever of being picked for the Cell C Sharks this weekend.

The burly front ranker yesterday revealed that a scan had ruled out the need for an operation, but that he will still be away from the field for another 2-3 weeks. That rules him out of all bar possibly a Super Rugby final appearance, should the Sharks manage to progress that far. The good news, from a Springbok point of view, is that he should be fit to play in the Rugby Championship which kicks off in early August.

Meanwhile, talk from Durban is that Dale Chadwick has suffered a leg injury and may also be in doubt for the weekend’s trip to Cape Town, which would presumably mean a maiden start for 19-year-old Thomas du Toit in the number 1 jersey and a mad scramble to find a spare prop to wear 17.

It’s not clear yet what sort of role Pat Lambie will play this weekend, but Jake White currently looks likely to start Frans Steyn at flyhalf, with Paul Jordaan joining JP Pietersen in midfield.

The Sharks will name their side at 8 tomorrow morning.
