Unluckly Mulipola & Habana down and out.

So the first round of the Super 14 is over and a few players left the matches to continue watching from the sidelines with injuries, Lucky Mulipola is one, Brian Habana is another.

I can confirm that Lucky Mulipola who left the field during the Highlanders’ match agains the Reds will be out for 8 to 10 weeks.

The Highlanders are on a two match trip to Australia and there is no intention of flying out a replacement for the unlucky Mulipola. James Wilson was taken over to Australia as the “23rd” man when the highlanders left New Zealand last week and will provide cover for the injured Mulipola.

In the Newlands clash between the Stormers and the Bulls, Bryan Habana stayed down after he scored the Bulls’ only try. He valiantly tried to play on for the rest of the match but didn’t last much longer and was replaced at half time.

The Bulls had to finish their match without their star winger. Bryan Habana is not a man who just goes down without a fight and his departure is cause for concern.

Team doctor Tommie Smook’s initial prognosis after his evaluation, is that Habana will be out for 2 to 4 weeks. The Bulls will issue a press release as soon as more information is available.

The Bulls host the Crusaders and the Sharks in the next two rounds of the Super 14.

  • Why they let Habana play on is beyond me… with him further aggravating the injury in a tackle…

  • KSA, I think Mulipola plays for the Highlanders, not Blues.

  • “He valiantly tried to play on for the rest of the match ”
    They could see it looked bad, thats when you TELL the dude to get off the field, its not worth it looking at the time he’ll lose now….80minutes vs possible 4 weeks :???:

  • One more injury.

    Hurricanes wing Zac Guildford will be out of action for 4-6 weeks after suffering a hand injury in a training ground accident.
    The 19-year-old Hawke’s Bay player fractured the fourth metacarpal of his right hand earlier this week.

  • Poor Habana…looked like he had a soft fall grounding that try but surprisingly he held onto his shoulder. Hopefully he’ll be back soon…we don’t want the Bulls whining about him forever…

  • I’m not fussed. They’re going to find a reason to complain anyway, so why make it more difficult for us.

    I mean, refs don’t seem to give a toss about any infringements leading up to a Habana try – we’ve seen that twice now. Why take the chance?

    ;)

  • It was a GOOD victory. But they are going to have to play with that intensity for 80 minutes this week. And still rely on a hefty dose of luck.

    At least Kiwi teams hate Ellis Park…

    Ok, I’m off for the afternoon. Need to go do some actual work.

    See you guys later
