Stormers loose head prop JD Moller has been ruled out for between 3 and 4 months, after diclocating his shoulder against the Hurricanes on Saturday.
The Stormers now face something of a crisis at prop; Eddie Andrews will not play at all this Super 14, while Schalk Ferreira has only just returned after recovering from a career-threatening neck injury. Youngsters Wikus Blaauw and Janro van Niekerk will also come into the reckoning.
Brian Mujati is apparently fine, after going off with cramp on Saturday.
Other bad news is that leading try-scorer Tonderai Chavanga is likely to be out for longer than the two weeks initially feared when he went down this weekend. Chavanga has injured his hamstring and will need an MRI scan to determine the prognosis of the injury. Gio Aplon is likely to take Chavanga’s spot on the right wing.Tweet
