Springboks returned broken

It has come to our attention that Springbok tighthead Jannie du Plessis has been injured and will be out of action for an estimated 6 weeks. This adds to Sharks coach John Plumtree’s worries as his front row stock diminishes.

Jannie du Plessis injured his knee and it is likely that the Springbok will only become available at the playoff stages. Add to this that Beast Mtawarira and Bismarck du Plessis are on the list of contracted players that will be on a conditioning programme and will not be available until the final round in the Currie Cup league stage. All the above culminates in the Sharks having to rely on their depth in the front row as a result.

As Rob mentions in another article, prop Pat Cilliers, who has been playing club rugby for the past few weeks, will most likely get the call straight back into the starting line up on Friday night. Craig Burden will most likely be the hooker on the night with Wiehahn Herbst completing a fresh faced front row.

In other news, it seems as though Keegan Daniel will not recover from his ankle injury sustained on Saturday night against the Bulls, and joins Ross Skeate on the injured list.

  • it is so damn stupid that Beast and Bismarck have to go and do conditioning. They haven’t played for the Boks in the 3Ns at all. :evil:

  • Agree. It makes sense to pull Bakkies, though. For the safety of everyone concerned :)

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 1) : pssst .. I’m sure somebody thought it through so deeply and there must be some hidden reason paramount to next year planning that we ordinary folks just do not get.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 1) : Bismark has also only played a handful of games in the Currie Cup – he needs game time rather than conditioning. Bismark said he wanted to play Currie Cup to get game time.

  • @robdylan (Comment 11) : ahh , can”t say i’m too worried about Bis being called up and Jannie off. Let’s show the brothers we can manage without them.

    Pity about Beast though.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 16) : “faulty ” implies broken from the start . you might have hit nail on its head here :twisted:

    wpw – he meant Boks broke Jannie and now Sharks need to mend him. They should at least take them for conditioning as it seems that place where all injured players go. :twisted:

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 9) : I`ll take the Bok Job! Just make sure my contract survives scrutiny then throw in the towl after the EOY tour! Make a fortune in no time at all and it`s not as if the country will hate me more than any of the other previous coaches.

    Stefan, JP, Juan, Frans, Mvovo, Steyn, Fourie, Alberts, Juan, Big Vic, Bullebak, Incredible Schulk, BJ, Chillyboy and Shrek. Subs: Coenie Oosthuizen!, John Smit, Daan, Flo, Mongoose Hougaardt, Elton and Michael Killian!

    On second thought, maybe I should take more Bulls and wp members. Can`t risk Shark injuries before the Super 14 hey wpw?! ;-)

  • @wpw (Comment 14) : You’re not really wrong, I just think that Beast, Bissie and Adi would benefit more from game time than a conditioning program. I understand they are contracted Boks, but they are all recovering from injury and are more in need of game time than gym time. In Beast’s case, not injury, but forced absence due to citizenship issues. Same injury argument could be made for JPP, needs game time, not gym time.
