ANOTHER KINGS FLYHALF DOWN
INJURY UPDATE: ASIDE FROM THEIR 13-43 LOSS TO GLASGOW WARRIORS ON FRIDAY, SOUTHERN KINGS HEAD COACH DEON DAVIDS HAS TO ADD ADDITIONAL INJURY CASUALTIES TO THEIR ALREADY LONG LIST.
According to the team doctor Clement Plaatjies, there were a number of injury concerns in the camp with the most notable of these was the concussion suffered by debutant flyhalf Martin Du Toit.
The flyhalf, who was called up as a replacement for first-choice flyhalf Kurt Coleman and backup Pieter-Steyn De Wet, will now definitely miss the Kings next match against Ulster as a result.
“We will follow the normal procedure and monitor his condition and he will only be available for selection again once he has been symptom-free for a week. I expect him to only be ready again for the match against Scarlets,” Plaatjies said.
“Our other major worry is team captain Michael Willemse who has been battling with an abdominal strain for a while now. It only seems to flare up during matches and he really battled with it against the Glasgow Warriors so we are going to have a scan done on it when we are back in Port Elizabeth.
