Bands injured AGAIN!

News24 reports that former Springbok tighthead prop Richard Bands, is injured again, and this time he will be off the field for between two and three weeks.

Bands was injured in the Vodacom Cup match against the Mighty Elephants in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

It is a completely different injury to the knee that kept him off the field last year after he had then also come back from yet another unrelated injury.

This time it is a little tear in a shoulder muscle – but the good news is Bands will only miss one game as the Blue Bulls aren’t playing over the Easter weekend.

The injury nevertheless comes at an inopportune time, as Bands is slowly getting his match fitness back.

Meanwhile Springbok hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle’s rehabilitation is going as scheduled after he had cartilage removed from his knee. He was injured 18 days ago during captain’s run before the Blue Bulls’ first Vodacom Cup match against the Eagles in George.

Wing John Mametsa is also doing fine after he injured his hamstring over the weekend against the Mighty Elephants. He was taken off as a precaution but will be able to play against the Cavaliers in Brits on Saturday.

The Blue Bulls will be without Henri Bantjes, Stefan Watermeyer, Gerrit-Jan van Velze, Divan Kotze, Francois Brummer, Frik Kirsten and Mauritz Boshoff will be attending the SA Under-20 training camp.

Good news for the Blue Bulls is that scrumhalf JP Joubert, who was acquired from the Boland last year but has been sidelined for the past six weeks because of a knee injury, might be fit enough to play 20 minutes against his former team.

The medical team will make a call later this week regarding Joubert’s fitness for Saturday’s match.

  • Wish he can get into top notch again. Hope Chilliboy can get to matches aswell. I want Derick Kuhn on the flank also. He should make a killing there in tandem with Wikus and Spies.

  • Seriously, what is the big deal with this oke? He’s fat, unfit and injury prone. I can name 5 better tightheads without even really thinking about it.

    Can’t he just give up and go away already?

  • Not related to rugby but check out this OTT reaction in the Daily Mail to a Pom dying from a Black Mamba bite…

    Perhaps an eradication program would be in order to get rid of such a dangerous species. Tampering with nature is not usually wise, but this snake is just too dangerous to share the earth with other species.

  • And even more rubbish…

    Black mambas are not only one of the fastest moving and venomous snakes on the planet, they are THE single most aggressive snake alive and once annoyed have been known to chase people for miles, and you need to be able to run like Linford Christie if you want to live.

    yeah, it’s basically impossible to prove that the atlete has used it. Pfff, the Chinese are the worst cuplrits though. Remember their all-conquering swim team about 5 years back & their coach’s “health drink” that they all religiously drank….

    Ol Richard Bands could do with a visit to either Linford’s doctor, or a bit of HGH…

  • Rotation time arrives for Sharks

    by Gavin Rich | 11 March 2008 (21:22)

    AJ Venter © Gallo Images
    Springboks AJ Venter and Ruan Pienaar are expected to return to the victorious Sharks team for Saturday’s Vodacom Super 14 clash with the Lions in Johannesburg.
    Pienaar has been out of the mix since he injured his collar-bone against the Stormers three matches ago, in which time young Rory Kockott has established himself as the star newcomer at scrumhalf among the South African teams in the Super 14.

    However, Kockott is one of several players who coach Dick Muir feels is nursing a niggling injury, so the return of Pienaar comes at just the right time. Muir has taken pains to point out that the Sharks won’t be fielding a B team at Ellis Park, but he will be resting players who have been going flat-out in the first four matches.

    “We have reached a delicate stage of the season and while we have done well to win our first four matches it is absolutely crucial that we don’t surrender that momentum now before we travel overseas,” said Muir.

    “This is the time when players will be feeling aches and pains and niggles from the stresses of the early matches, and we must manage our resources properly.”

    Venter should return on the side of the scrum for Jacques Botes, who wore the No7 jersey in the win over the Blues. There again, Venter could just as easily also be accommodated as a lock partner for Johann Muller, a position filled last week by Albert van den Berg with Steven Sykes deputising.

    Whatever he chooses to do, Muir does have options, and it is a pleasant dilemma that he sits with as his team prepare for this South African derby match. If the Lions had any hopes that the Sharks would be taking them lightly, they were dispelled by assistant coach John Plumtree at a press conference on Tuesday.

    “For whatever reason, South African derbies are not like other Super 14 games and form often flies out of the window,” said Plumtree.

    “Now that we are one of only two unbeaten teams everyone is going to want to beat us. If I was coaching the Lions I would be telling my players that the Sharks are coming to Johannesburg expecting to win and I would really rev them up for the occasion. So there is no question of us taking this game lightly.”

    The talk of rotation though does suggest a couple of intriguing possibilities apart from the ones already discussed. For a start, Muir has been hinting for a while now that he would like to give Francois Steyn another go at flyhalf, and the rarified atmosphere of the Highveld might provide the perfect opportunity for him to do that.

    If he does make this move, Stefan Terblanche will move from wing to fullback in place of Steyn, with Frederic Michalak taking a rest and Odwa Ndungane taking Terblanche’s place on the right wing.

    If any of Adi, Barritt & Waylon should play wing it should be the latter. Bout time Adi got a start too. And not on the wing either.

  • Jaco had butterfingers big time vs the Bulls. Hmmm, actually same can be said for most of the Lions team. :roll:

    I think it’s pretty apt that the lions have red jumpers for the S14…. it’s a warning to all those nearby of the impending IMPLOSION that always happens…

  • just look at this crap, printed on Suparugby…

    “Weens die gebrek aan kleur in die Lions-kamp is Thabang Molefe ook opgetrek.

    Die Leeus se gebrek aan kwaliteit kwotaspelers bly een van die span se kopsere.”

    For those of us not versed in throat-disease, it says the following:

    “As a result of the lack of colour in the Lions squad, Thabang Molefe has also been pulled in. The lack of quality quota players remains a headache for the Lions”.

    With thinking like that so prevalent, it’s not surprising we’re not moving forward. Shame on you, you bunch of ignorant planks. It’s time to leave the stone age behind!

    Looks like we’re pretty much certain to see a Pienaar-Steyn halfback combo, though, based on what Dick is saying. How’s that for our second string?

  • “and stefan could cause havock from the back”

    then again we all know what happened with Stef T in the CC semi…but surely lightening can’t strike twice in the same place?

    Charl MacLeod. Oh yes. If anything the lad WILL have a HUGE point to prove against the Lions. I mean, they contracted him from the WP & then loaned him out to the Valke. WTF? Surely he wa a better option for their VC team last season than the ageing Dave von Hoesslin who was probably a few seasons past it…

  • i think they’re outside my door as we speak!

    They should rather have one called “The Ottos are coming”. My whole family is planning a British Invasion this year.

  • We are pleased, but we know there is still a tremendous amount of work to be done. I am still impressed by how hard the guys works, especially the management team. I can now only truly appreciate why many coaches have short careerers.

    How are things over there?

    YOU must have your work cut out for you this week?

    Going from beating a team like the Blues and then ensuring that they guys don’t “go to sleep” for the Lions match must be tuff?

    The players are up for it, for me there is a strong leadership and emerging leadership component in the team, and they are doing really good things for the team. I believe we will be up for it, time will tell.

    I am enjoying Durban, the time is flying. I cant believe I have been here over 3 months already. I am getting involved in everything I can, from helicopters to Cedric’s dinner next Wed.

    Its an interesting world when you are a pseudo-celebrity, in that when you with the team people think you may be someone important, and tentatively ask your name as if they might have forgotten or be behind the times, and when you are incognito, you just feel this tremendous responsibility to give as much as you can to something that means so much to so many.

    When we arrived back from OR Tambo from the bulls game, the arrivals hall at Durban International spontaneously burst into applause. I have never blushed whilst having goose bumps before. Its an interesting space to be in.

  • I actually didn’t see you on TV during the Blues game, TG… maybe I was just too wrapped up in the match.

    Are you attending Cedric’s dinner? I’ve been helping to raise awareness through the facebook group I created just after the accident.

    Spamming is what I do best, after all ;)

  • looks like a sensible team, Charlie. In line with a lot of the comments I’ve heard from the coaches.

    Did your “special friend” give you that lineup? ;)
