The Stormers’ run of loose forward injuries continue as it was confirmed over the weekend that Nizaam Carr has been ruled out for the season, with torn Anterior Cruciate Ligaments (ACL) in his right knee.
Carr went off early in the match against the Cheetahs on Saturday evening, which saw Canadian Jebb Sinclair making his debut from the bench.
This leaves the Stormers with further problems in this area, as they have already lost Schalk Burger, Duane Vermeulen and Nick Koster, and all to knee injuries, until at least after the International break in Super Rugby.
In the meantime, Allister Coetzee will be tearing his hair out as he has to start looking for loose forward cover all over again, and whether he will again look to Europe or whether he gives a young Province player a chance, remains to be seen.
The Stormers face the Waratahs at Newlands on Saturday evening.Tweet
