Louis Ludik was stretchered off the field against Western Province at The Tank on Saturday, but looks set to continue at fullback for the Sharks on Friday night against Griquas.

He left the field in the 28th minute of the game after taking a knock to the head, but was out and about after the game, an indication that the injury incurred was not as serious as first expected.

Ludik is expected to undergo some testing throughout the week to ascertain whether there were any serious effects after he was knocked out whilst tackling a Western Province player. If the results from the impending concussion tests are as expected, the player should be available for selection against Griquas on Friday night.

  • Thank goodness it wasn’t a more serious injury, :o this guy just came back from a serious injury. And have to agree Tintin. I think he is going to become even better for us at a rapid pace. :!:

    I really hope so, we need a solid fullback, and he has been awesome at the back for us.

  • the guy we sat next to at the FNB this past weekend was pretty connected to the lions setup aswell as Ludik`s old School, EG Jansen, and he told me that Ludik wants to go overseas if he`s not in contention for the WC squad. Anybody know how for how long he signed on?

    And he also said that Lions fullback Jaco Taute`s heart is on signing for WP next year.

  • I’m glad he’s okay…it looked horrible. He’s a good player…and I don’t think he looks like a hobbit ICE.

  • @war1 (Comment 11) : agree, just hoped it will be a more long term signing. the same with JLP and Meyer bosman, if they are on 1 year contracts. then we should rather give youngsters a chance.

  • @VanWilder (Comment 12) : rugby in SA is gonna change a lot after the world cup, although with salary caps and hopefully homegrown quotas in the european clubs it might not be so bad

  • @war1 (Comment 13) : It’s gonna be bad…like in soccer, all the players now play in Europe. I didn’t know about the salary caps or the homegrown quotas, but won’t be surprised if the Europeans starts to change that rule also.

  • @war1 (Comment 13) :

    People said the same thing after World Cup 2007, and what has changed.. all the players that were going overseas ended up back at their provincial teams within 18 months.

    We might see a few people retire and leave, like Smit and Matfield and Du Preez, but we have the talent to fill thsse voids.

  • @war1 (Comment 13) : war, i see that the salary caps in NZ rugby is paying dividends at the moment? seems like anyone can win the ITM cup?

    whats the chances of it being implemented here? i mean, a sharks c or d side should still be too good for the leopards. rather the bigger unions let their fringe players go to unions where they get run-time…? unfortunalty the smaller unions cant pay the salaries that the top 5 can.

  • @VanWilder (Comment 16) : privatising the teams might work better than salary caps, the top 5 teams can already not compete with europe, or oz for that matter
