The Stormers season has gotten off to another bad start in terms of injury with news that lock Eben Etzebeth will miss the first 5 rounds due to an ankle injury.

Etzebeth left the field early in the Stormers’ preseason match against the Boland Cavaliers, with the bad news confirmed following a scan – torn ligaments in his left ankle.

Etzebeth will be out of action for at least six weeks, and with Super Rugby starting next week, it rules him out of at least five weekend’s rugby, if not more.

The Stormers will have to rely on backup such as De Kock Steenkamp and Michael Rhodes to fill the gap and link up with Andries Bekker in the second row.

  • Gutted for him, but it was bound to happen with the way he puts himself about the field.
