Pieter-Steph gets his miracle!

Pieter-Steph du Toit will only be out of rugby for three months following his knee injury against the Cheetahs.

As we reported earlier, yesterday’s appointment with the knee specialist failed to turn up the expected bad news – quite the opposite in fact. Pieter-Steph was referred for a scope today and has just revealed, via his twitter account, that the procedure was successful and he’ll be back on the field WAY sooner than the 8 months at first predicted.

Clearly elated, Pieter-Steph followed up with a tweet thanking fans for their support and prayers.

  • Really good news for him. Sad that I won’t see him fir the rest of Super Rugby though. I just want him to rest up now and HM to give him a good run during the RC to get him match fit for RWC.

  • Would have been nice if it was shorter, but still great news. He is one of those guys that I will consider a sharkie forever. We all just love this kid to bits. And he has been immense this season a legend in the making. Good also to hear about sbura coming back. What is the story with Deysel when can we see captain america back on?
