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.Tweet
