Etzebeth possibly out for Chiefs match
DHL Western Province Stormers coach, Allister Coetzee, is worried about the availability of lock, Eben Etzebeth for this week’s Super Rugby match.
"Lock Eben Etzebeth took a bang on his shoulder against the Sharks which has affected his previous (chest) injury a bit, which is normal for two injuries in such close proximity. He is a bit uncomfortable and a call will be made on his participation later this week," a statement on the Stormers official website said.
Etzebeth was side-lined for the entire 2014 Super Rugby season due to an ankle injury, and missed the first three matches of this year's campaign, following a chest injury, which he sustained during the pre-season.
Stormer’s flanker, Mike Rhodes, will definitely be missing this weekend’s match, after he injured his knee during the 22-19 win against the Emirates Golden Lions on the 28th of February.
After missing last Saturday’s match against the Cell C Sharks, Coetzee has said that he will not risk Rhodes this weekend either.
The Stormers will next be facing the Chiefs at DHL Newlands on Saturday afternoon.
