According to Rugby365, Bok centre Juan de Jongh has suffered a knee injury that will rule him out of action for around six weeks.

This will take him out of the selection frame for the Stormers’ opening Super Rugby fixtures, possibly including their Australasian tour.

Meanwhile, Schalk Burger will lead a somewhat experimental Stormers team – that doesn’t feature campaign captain Jean de Villiers – in a Super Rugby warmup against the Kings on Friday evening.

Stormers: 15 Jaco Taute, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Michael van der Spuy, 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Scott van Breda, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Nic Groom, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Schalk Burger (captain), 6 Siya Kolisi, 5 Manuel Carizza, 4 Rynhardt Elstadt, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Scarra Ntubeni, 1 Steven Kitshoff.
Replacements – from: Deon Fourie, Oliver Kebble, Pat Cilliers, Michael Rhodes, Jean Kleyn, Nizaam Carr, Sikhumbuzo Notshe, Louis Schreuder, Gary van Aswegen, Pat Howard, Devon Williams, Ryno Eksteen.

  • Really rate de allende as a center and if de jongh’s injury put him back in the midfield then its not all bad. It does put a lot of pressure on strms already thin back three….

  • Is it just me or does it seem like every year these warm up games produce more injuries, percentage wise, than normal super rugby games?

  • @gregkaos (Comment 7) : That’s perhaps why the Bulls thought it best to play only one warm-up match.

  • @gregkaos (Comment 7) :

    If that knee or shoulder is gonna go, then its gonna go.
    If not the warm-up game, then the first real game.

    Some are just unlucky, but some are playing with injuries.

  • the stormers have never lived up to their talent and promises. Let us see if Alistar uses this as an excuse. I never heard plumb using it as an excuse

  • See Habana talk about him being a center before he make it big on the wing……says he think de allende can do the same……he might not be bad, but don’t think he will have habana-like speed….ever
