Bad news for Stormers fans is that Bok lock Eben Etzebeth won’t be available for selection for this weekend’s game against the Cheetahs.
Etzie hurt his ankle playing for the Boks and will be forced to spend at least another week on the sidelines, although Rynhardt Elstadt will be back this week, having served out his suspension. Ginger strongman Steven Kitshoff should also be back for the Bloemfontein clash, having been force to rest last week.
There’s a spot of flu doing the rounds, though, with Bryan Habana, Juan de Jongh and Marcel Brache all laid up in bed with the virus. Coach Alister Coetzee seems fairly confident that all three players will be healthy again by the weekend.
The Stormers need to win against the Cheetahs to secure top spot in the South African conference.Tweet
