Fans, Tera Mtembu and Stephan Lewies both go under the knife today, for surgical procedures necessary to correct their respective knee injuries.

We don’t have specifics as to the nature of either injury, but since both require surgery, it’s safe to assume that they are serious. Lewies suffered his knee injury during the tour victory over the Reds earlier in the month, while Mtembu damaged his knee playing for Amanzimtoti in a club game over the same weekend.

Thoughts and prayers with both players, both this morning and through the tough weeks of recovery and rehab to come.


  • Both players have been so unlucky with injuries lately and both players are young players that are so important to the rebuilding phase starting at the Sharks.

    I wish them both a speedy recovery. Hope to see them back in black soon.

  • Is it just me or does it make it even worse that Tera’s happened during a club game…

    Best of luck to both of them. Hope to see them fit for next year.

  • @Seth101 (Comment 5) : double-edged sword. Oke coming back from a knee injury plays a club game to get match fit ahead of Currie Cup. Injures the other knee.

  • It’s so sad when all these players keep getting injured. Is it my imagination or are the Sharks the worst off in terms of injuries – especially long term injuries?

  • @robdylan (Comment 6) : My personal opinion, is that Springboks and Super rugby players should never go back and play club rugby! The reason for this is that all club rugby players are looking for a scalp, to claim that they are better than xyz player.

    The club player will do anything to be able to claim that the guy that has made it is not as good as him as he took him out. Even if it is by illegal means.

  • @robdylan (Comment 6) : it happens as the healthy part takes a lot more strain whilst the injured part recovered.
