Ettas, S’bura return in ray of light for Sharks

Sharks team doctor Alan Kourie has issued a medical update which makes grim reading, but also contains a smattering of good news.

Etienne Oosthuizen returns to training this week, after injuring his knee against Toulon in pre-season. It’s not clear whether he’ll be considered to play this weekend, however. S’bura Sithole, who has missed out since the opening round, also returns to training.

The Sharks have not confirmed any prognosis for Pieter-Steph du Toit, but rather await the specialist’s verdict. There’s further bad news for Tera Mtembu, who has a knee complaint of his own that requires a specialist’s attention.

Here is the report in full:

Pieter-Steph du Toit:
He is seeing the specialist who operated on the same knee previously, in Cape Town today. We are hoping that it is not a re-rupture of his ACL and a confirmed diagnosis will be made after seeing the specialist.

“We as The Sharks family and I’m sure South African rugby fans at large are hoping that his injury is not as bad as originally feared,” said Dr Alan Kourie, The Cell C Sharks Team Doctor.

Willem Alberts:
Hamstring strain. Out for approximately 2/3 weeks.

Tera Mtembu:
Cartilage damage in the knee. He is seeing a specialist today to determine treatment plan in conjunction with The Sharks medical team.

Stephan Lewies:
Knee and Shoulder surgery and his recovery is on track. He is still out for approximately 4 weeks.

Paul Jordaan:
He is progressing well and his recovery is on track.

Etienne Oosthuizen:
Resuming training with the team today.

S’bura Sithole:
Resuming training with the team today.
