Further delay to Barritt’s patchy season

Midfield marshal Brad Barritt is set to be sidelined for a further two weeks, following yet another injury blow prior to the Sharks’ Currie Cup clash against the Lions last Saturday.

Rugby 365 reports that the inside centre, who was initially included in last week’s side to take on the Lions at Absa stadium, was withdrawn last Thursday after going down in captain’s practice – and may not be available this coming weekend for the Griquas’ encounter in Kimberley.

“For the last four weeks he’s [Barritt] been available then unavailable,” Sharks coach John Plumtree told sharksrugby.co.za.

“I don’t know if he will make it this weekend either; he has a Grade One hamstring injury which is generally two weeks out of the game,” he added.

The Sharks loose forward revelation Ryan Kankowski on the other hand should be available for further selection, following initial concerns after he left the field at Absa stadium with a shoulder injury.

Plumtree confirmed the Springbok No.8 had injured his AC joint (shoulder) but said he didn’t believe it was too serious.

Flank forward Jean Deysel, who was outstanding in the Sharks’ hard-fought victory over the Lions, has made an influential and welcomed return from injury and will no doubt become a starting XV regular again.

“We’ve missed the ball-carrying ability of a player like Jean,” explained Plumtree.

“We’ve missed that importance of big guys who can cross the advantage line, and to have the one we have injured has affected us in the past.

“Our attack work is still a bit of concern for us.

“We’re not getting the momentum we want but it was good having Beast and Jean back to get some momentum, they’re big ball-carriers,” Plumtree added.

    Hes the guy that gets injured every week and then comes back from his injuty a week early only to be reinjured a few minutes before running onto the field. I think he has got blonde hair.

    He is the SA player who holds the record for being included in the most starting XV’s without actually starting the match.
