The Sharks have released an injury report ahead of today’s team announcement for the Lions clash.

While we already know that neither Willie le Roux nor Joe Pietersen will play, it has been confirmed that Pat Lambie is also definitely out this week.

The report follows:



Joe Pietersen Shoulder fracture;
Approximate layoff is 6 weeks.
Patrick Lambie Concussion;
Pat has not passed the concussion graduated return to play protocol;
He will be re-tested next week.
Willie le Roux – On suspension for one week;
Carrying an AC joint niggle.


  • Quite concerning about Pat. Wonder if it will make him reconsider his future…may want to cash in on some foreign currency before playing days end soon. No news on Inny Radebe? Seems he has been injured for ages.

  • So stander got one week for taking Lambie out for at least four? Seems unfair.

  • FFS!!! I know it was an accident and injuries are bound to happen in Rugby, but it just seems mightily unfair to Pat. CJ was reckless.

  • reports that Michael Claassens not available for the clash either. The guys really have their backs against the wall

  • @SeanJeff (Comment 5) : How did Claasens get injured? He has had 4 weeks off doing nothing. He trip over something at Kuauii?

  • @Uli Boelie (Comment 4) : Whether or not he deserved red will be debatable for millennia. The way I see it: Yes, he probably did go for the charge down. But if you are a 100+kg loose forward, jumping into the air at speed with momentum carrying you forward toward a much smaller player in front of you.. you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what happens next.

  • So this list would mean that both Dup twins and Ginja-ninja are fit and ready for selection?

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 8) : no, NEVER assume that Sharks injury reports are full and comprehensive. They regularly just forget to include players

  • Very bad news on Lambie, it’s not regular to be out for such a long time with a concussion, I hope he will be the same player when he comes back, that must have been a very serious knock, more so than we thought.

  • @robdylan (Comment 9) : Aah, okay…so this list just softens us up for the real list – a list that we never quite receive.

    Salmo must be happy that certain things are still exactly the same as in the days of BvZ and Co. 😈
