Stirling Mortlock is set to miss the Rebels’ opening game of the Super Rugby season against the Waratahs on Friday, struggling with a calf injury that he suffered four weeks ago.

Good news for the Rebels is that new recruit Kurtley Beale has recovered from his hamstring strain and is likely to make his debut along with James O’Connor against the Tahs.

Another new recruit, Mitch Inman, is likely to fill Mortlock’s boots in the outside centre position, after having a good preseason with his new team.

The Rebels will also be without their first choice hooker Ged Robinson, who is battling with a calf injury.

Amongst the other teams we have the following injuries that we can report on:

Bulls – Wynand Olivier, Dewald Potgieter, Johann Sadie
Cheetahs – Juan Smith, Coenie Oosthuizen
Lions – Bandiso Maku, Waylon Murray, Ross Cronje, Wickus van Heerden
Sharks – Beast Mtawarira, Julian Redelinghuys, Willem Alberts, Jean Deysel, Al Hargreaves
Stormers – Deon Fourie, Rynhardt Elstadt, Schalk Burger

Waratahs – Lachie Turner, Drew Mitchell, Dan Vickerman, Berrick Barnes
Brumbies – Pat McCabe, Colby Fainga’a, Robbie Coleman
Reds – Adam Wallace-Harrison, Rod Davies, Quade Cooper
Rebels – Stirling Mortlock, Ged Robinson

Crusaders – Dan Carter, Richie McCaw
Highlanders – Shaun Treeby, Kendrick Lynn, Kade Poki, Siale Piutau, Jarrad Hoeata
Hurricanes – Reggie Goodes
Blues – Tony Woodcock
Chiefs – Toby Smith, Ben Afeaki, Lelia Masaga, Brendon Leonard

  • Foley said the Waratahs were preparing as if Beale would be playing . . .

    Good News then hehehehe

    Oh, Barnes will be at 12 with Halangahu at 10 against the Rebels, which puts him opposite O`Connor.

  • Elstadt is set to return this week, which I’m not so sure about since Etzebeth performed so well last week. Juan will also be back which means a shift to wing for Bryan. Shadow, Aplon and Joe all did well last week but one will have to sit out whilst the other two take the second wing and fullback position. Joe’s kicking was great, but I still think that having Aplon at fullback gives additional counter attacking capabilities.

  • @ChrisS (Comment 17) :
    Your probably right.
    But that would still leave Aplon at wing. I wonder if Joe can play another position?

  • @Leviathan (Comment 15) :etsebeth not cited for the elbow to the face of canes 20 then..? Stormers were lucky to have that try allowed-some nasty went on there-though I don’t know if the canes were also guilty of off the ball play.but as try was scored,a stormer hand makes contact with the face of a canes player.

  • @Leviathan (Comment 18) : Joe’s fast enough to play wing so they can swap. They could even swap on attack ocasionally. Joe’s fantastic on attack as well so I don’t see much difference between them. I reckon Joe wouldn’t do a Bok jersey any disservice!

  • @bergshark (Comment 19) :
    Etsebeth hasn’t been cited for anything as far as I know. I didn’t see any foul play from him. Then again, the ref didn’t card a Hurricanes player who took Shadow around the neck, or the one that tripped Bryan, that got a white. The Canes were ok but their discipline was horrendous.
