Van Aswegen crocked – but how badly?

Western Province’s already meagre flyhalf stocks look to have been further depleted, with Gary van Aswegen likely to miss out this weekend. The young pivot, already a stand-in himself after injury has cut a swathe through the ranks, has picked up his second knee injury of the year, although reports differ as to the prognosis.

Stephen Nell, writing for Sports24 reports that the injury doesn’t look too serious, while the boys from Keo claim that he’s torn medial ligaments and will be sidelined for two months. Either way, it appears as though Demetri Catrakilis of Ikeys fame will make his first Currie Cup start against the Leopards on Saturday.

Province have already lost Peter Grant to Japan and both Lionel Cronje and Curt Coleman to injury.

  • I am honestly actually starting to feel sorry for Province though, they really have the worst of luck (though that doesn’t change the fact that they are chokers :mrgreen: ).

  • @The Sharks Sharkie (Comment 1) : It’s getting hectic. My club’s 1st team FH got injured 2weeks ago, and the 3rd team FH almost passed out on the field : he just had like a blank stare on his face, must have been bloodsugar or something.

  • If you have aspirations to be a Bok front rower, play for the SHARKS.

    If you have aspirations to be a Bok loose forward, play for the CHEETAHS.

    If you have aspirations to be a Bok lock or flyhalf, play for the BULLS.

    If you have aspirations to be a Bok center, play for the STORMERS.

    If you have aspirations to be a Bok fullback, play OVERSEAS.

    If you have aspirations to be a Bok…… supporter then play for the LIONS.

  • I really dont see the flyhalf problem? Ok yes they have a few injuries which isnt ideal. But how many premier league clubs are there in the Western Cape? Are the Hammies and Maties flyhalves that bad? and the u21s? Its not an ideal situation but a great chance for a club player to put his hand up!

    its tricky … van aswegen is out for 8 weeks .. but coleman or cronje will be back in 2 ..

    taute should be back in 3 weeks ..

    Ebersohn might or might not be back soon …

    SO ….

    do we take the risk of replacing the players that might be back soon and waste a transfer …

    OR take a hit in points and wait for them to come back and save your transfer ….

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 62) : It’s simple really, the object of the game is to have a squad of 30 players. From that squad you have to select 15 starters each week and the other 15 need to be injured for them to score any points in your squad.

    I thought it best I DON’T add Elgar Watts to that list.

    I wonder if we’ll ever select him going forward. I mean surely he’s better than both Dollie and Earl!! :shock:

  • @wpw (Comment 81) : I was about to remind you how you left Rose off your list too ;)

    I think its safe to say our management isn’t going to give Elgar a chance.
