Could Michalak return to SA?

France flyhalf Frederic Michalak does not require knee surgery and he should be out of action for no more than three months, his agent said on Wednesday.

The Sharks player hyper-extended his left knee during his team’s 25-10 defeat to the New South Wales Waratahs last Saturday and Sharks management initially thought he had torn the anterior-cruciate ligament and could be out for six months.

“He had a scan on his knee that showed a sprain but he will not undergo surgery and should be out for two to three months,” Dalila Essidiri told Reuters.

“He will stay for 10 to 15 more days in Toulouse and we will then see if he goes back (to South Africa). It will depend on what the Sharks want to do with him.”

The 25-year-old’s contract with the South African side was scheduled to end in June.

  • :lol:

    On a serious note though. If his contract expires in june and he has to be out for 2 to 3 months then it will meant at least July before he can play.

    Must be some behind the scene negotiations going on.

  • we need a flyhalf… problem is, there isn’t even anyone in the Wildebeest team putting their hand up.

    Marx, Swanepoel, Spedding, de Bruyn… they’ve tried all of them and they all suck

  • That WOULD cause a riot alright. Some Durban boy will bliksem him at the first nightclub he goes to for trying to “sokkie/windsurf”

  • Barrit will be the CC flyhalf again.

    Steyn and Pienaar will go to the Boks. If Butch returns he will also surely go to the Boks, so that ONLY leaves Barrit.

  • I also wouldn’t be so sure about our utility wünderkinders being picked by PdeV… let’s face it, they’re hardly on form.

  • problem with both Barritt and Jacobs at 10 is that neither has a kicking game. We got MOERED last year as a result of that.

  • I have a feeling Fred is going to return for CC. Just a hunch that I’m hoping to have confirmed within the next day or two.
