Lions centre out for the season
Xerox Golden Lions centre, Stokkies Hanekom, will be out for the rest of the Currie Cup season after fracturing his right fibula during his side 26-23 loss against the Cell C Sharks in Durban on Friday.
The centre has been on great form this season by scoring four tries and having strong defensive skills. Lions coach, Johan Ackermann, has said that losing Hanekom will be a big blow for the team.
According to the SARugbyMag, there is a possibility that Hanekom will miss the 2015 Super Rugby season, although no indication has yet given as to how long he will be on the sidelines.
Lions Fullback, Andries Coetzee, will also not be available for the next two weeks, after sustaining a groin strain in the run ahead of the clash with the Sharks.
He was taken off the field early in the game, with Springbok flyhalf, Marnitz Boshoff, filling his position and Jaco van der Walt moving to flyhalf.
The Lions will next face the Toyota Free State Cheetahs in their final Currie Cup game at Ellis Park on Saturday.
