Ahead of this weekend’s match, Dr Alan Kourie, The Cell C Sharks Team Doctor, has released a medical update on the following players:

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.

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:

Ahead of the match Cell C Sharks Director of Rugby, Gary Gold said: “There were plenty of positives for us to take away from the Cheetahs match and the team will definitely be looking to build on that momentum going in to the clash against the Chiefs. They are a champion side who are on a winning streak and we are under no illusions about the enormity of the challenge that lies ahead on Saturday.”
