In a boost ahead of the Brumbies’ must-win match against the Sharks on Saturday, coach Laurie Fisher declared captain Stirling Mortlock “fine” after the concussion he suffered in the team’s hard-fought win over the Blues.
Mortlock left the field in the second half after his head collided with the knee of opposition hooker Keven Mealamu on Saturday. But Fisher said the Wallaby skipper would be available to play this weekend, according to SAPA and News24.
“He’s pulled up fine today. There are no ill effects,” Fisher said about his captain. “He didn’t even take a Panadol.”
The Sharks escaped with a narrow win over the Highlanders on Friday to remain unbeaten this year and sit second on the ladder behind the Crusaders.Tweet
