Andre Pretorius has been ruled out of the entire Super 14 competition with a hamstring injury. No, this is not an old story. It’s actually happened to him again!
You’ve got to feel for the lad, as well as for Force coach John Mitchell who has placed so much faith in the injury-prone flyhalf. Pretorius finally parted ways with the Lions after missing his umpteenth season through injury and was due to play for the Force this Super 14 before heading over to Japan.
Mitchell viewed Pretorius as the replacement in his team for Wallaby Matt Giteau, who has returned to the Brumbies. Now that the former Bok has been ruled out (for three months as the result of a bizarre training ground injury), Mitch will no doubt be forced to field rookie James O’Connor in the number 10 jersey.
Bad luck, Petoors. Hope it comes right.Tweet
