4 months for Herbst

Sharks tighthead Wiehahn Herbst suffered a season-ending injury against Western Province on Saturday.

The young prop dislocated his right ankle, as well as fracturing his fibula. He will need to undergo an operation to repair the damage and will be out of the game for at least four months. It’s a cruel blow to a player who was just starting to make his mark on the senior stage.

Herbst will be back in time for next year’s Super 14 and should push hard for a position in the Sharks squad.

The injury leave John Plumtree with a bit of a headache, as he’ll have to persevere with Pat Cilliers at tighthead for the next two games until his Bok contingent of Jannie du Plessis and John Smit returns. Cilliers has looked far from comfortable in the number 3 shirt this season and one wouldn’t blame Plumtree if he rather opted to throw another rookie, like promising Under 21 prop Julian Redelinghuys, into the deep end against Boland.

  • Pity, he looked the part. Scrummed well.
    @Fattmann (Comment 1) : Bloem has an airport, he could fly there, buy a prop and bring him home to start on Saturday.

  • @Loosehead (Comment 4) :
    True, but sadly due to the lack of interest in going to Bloem many of the flights have been cut to there and Kimberley. I think it will have to be a Roadlink bus to the stasie.

  • @MAXED (Comment 11) : nice one… am I correct in assuming you know these lads personally, or are you just a fan?

    Must say, in the limited dealings I’ve had with Wiehahn Herbst, I’ve found him to be an incredibly pleasant young man. Tighthead props tend to be the most down-to-earth people.
