Jannes crocked

Veteran Lions lock Jannes Labuschagne has had his long-awaited return to Super rugby delayed by at least 6 weeks.

Labuschagne apparently had knee surgery on Tuesday and will be out of action at least that long. Anton van Zyl and Gerhardt Mostert will be the Lions first choice lock pair in Labuschagne’s absence, with the Leopards’ Ligtoring Landman as backup.

Big Jannes will probably best be remembered for his disastrous last test, where his sending off for a high tackle on Johnny Wilkinson was instrumental in the Boks going down by 50 points.
