The Sharks Super Rugby preparations suffered a major setback this morning after a serious injury looks set to sideline prop Beast Mtawarira
The Bok loosehead suffered a lower leg fracture in a freak training injury and may be on the sidelines for up to 12 weeks as a result, according to our information.
The Sharks will now be forced to dig deep and back Dale Chadwick to start at loosehead, after Eugene van Staden was released to join Biarritz. Jannie du Plessis now stands alone as the only international prop in a squad that was once overflowing with them.
We’d like to wish Beast the speediest possible recovery.
UPDATE: Sharks team doctor Ewoudt van der Linde has confirmed that Beast suffered a broken ankle yesterday morning.Tweet
