Ouch, poor old Jaco Taute will miss out on the Stormers’ second-round Super Rugby clash against the Sharks, after taking a hit “to the groin” against the Bulls last weekend.
The on-loan Lions fullback won few plaudits for his game at Loftus and would in all likelihood have lost out to Joe Pietersen this time around anyway, due to the latter’s goal-kicking ability.
A number of other Stormers players suffered knocks, but appear likely to be cleared to play this weekend, including prop Pat Cilliers (concussion) and scrumhalf Nic Groom. In addition, Juan de Jongh returned to training after suffering a hamstring injury in pre-season and may come into the selection frame this weekend, depending on how he goes tomorrow.
