Johann Muller appears to have broken a finger and must thus be unlikely to feature against the Hurricanes.
The source of this story is John Smit’s highly informative Twitter stream. According to the captain, Muller spent the night in hospital after the game.
Smit also posted this picture, in which the lanky lock’s mangled digit can clearly be seen. It looks like the ring finger on his right hand, so at least wife Mariska won’t have to worry about him being unable to wear his wedding band. Then again, looking at his other hand, maybe she does!
Thanks to Barney for keeping us informed via these snippets and here’s hoping for a speedy recovery for Joe. One of Alistair Hargreaves or Wilhelm Steenkamp will surely now come into the picture to start against the Hurricanes.Tweet
