Injury clouds for Sharks

Things don’t get any easier for the Sharks, who have returned home from tour carrying a length injury list after their tour victory over the Reds last Friday.

Facing the Melbourne Rebels in Durban on Friday night – a team they have never lost to, yet find themselves behind on the log this season – Gary Gold will need to keep his fingers firmly crossed that at least some of his injured players come through in time to be selected.

One guy who definitely won’t take the field is poor Stephan Lewies. We’re awaiting an official prognosis, but the talk is that the ugly knee injury sustained in Brisbane last week is sure to sideline him for the rest of the Super Rugby season, if not the bulk of the Currie Cup campaign to follow. Frans Steyn, who suffered an arm injury last week, is also in doubt for the game and awaiting scan results. Tera Mtembu also looks doubtful, having sustained yet another knee injury in a club game last weekend.

Reports differ as to whether Cobus Reinach or Ryan Kankowski will return this week; I’ve read stories going both ways on either player, so we’ll just have to wait and see. Paul Jordaan would appear to be fit for selection, though, while Jean Deysel could also make a return, if fit. His suspension has finally run its course.

The Sharks will announce their side at 10am tomorrow.
