Schutte joins the exodus

The Valke will be weakened through injury this weekend, with former Sharks fullback Jacques Schutte also unavailable through a decision to head to France.

The East Rand side are already struggling to fill the gap left by first-choice flyhalf Riaan “True Blue” Smit’s injury. Schutte had at least taken over the goal-kicking duties, but they will need to find another to fill that role as well against WP this weekend.

Other injury concerns are wing Ernie Kruger (out for 7 weeks) and prop Gavin Wittingham, along with flank Uwe Sauer, who missed the Sharks game. Amateur prop Dylan Maree has been called up to cover for Whittingham. The former is apparently a feared scrummager, which is just what Province won’t want, given the questions around tighthead Brok Harris’s technique in this most vital of phases.

Province will know they need to pick up 5 points in Brakpan to keep themselves in touch after their shock defeat to Griquas. The fates seem to be conspiring against Rudy Joubert’s team to make Province’s job that much easier.

  • @VinChainSaw (Comment 11) :
    Boxing writer Terry Pettifer speaking on the radio yeterday afternoon recounted how when working as a debt collecter Mike (the tank Schutte had to reposses an old mans car, when he got there he took pity on the old man and paid the outstanding amount for him. He apparently had a very small heart (outside the ring).
