The Sharks are holding their breath over the fitness of flyhalf Pat Lambie ahead of the clash with the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein this weekend.
The Beeld newspaper reports that Lambie suffered concussion in their rampant win over the Force on Saturday, in which Lambie played only 40 minutes. According to Sharks team doctor, the concussion as not serious, and Lambie could play this weekend.
The reality though is that all teams follow Boksmart protocols, which enforce a two week lay-off for a bad concussion, and if it is not a serious injury, the player is tested in various ways, and only if the player passes these tests, will he be allowed to play.
A decision on Lambie will be taken much later in the week, with Saturday morning being as late as they can go, which would force the team to travel with 23 players.Tweet
