    2013-05-27 11:27
    Port Elizabeth - Kings director of rugby, Alan Solomons, has confirmed that wing Siyanda Grey and lock Steven Sykes will miss their Super Rugby clash against the Stormers at Newlands on Saturday.

    Both sustained injuries in their 34-22 loss to the Cheetahs on Saturday.

    “Siyanda has a hamstring injury and will be out for three weeks, while Sykes has sustained a shoulder injury that will see him out for four weeks,” said Solomons.

    Solomons said the rest of the team had the usual knocks, bumps and bruises following the match, but there were no concerns at this stage. 

    Grey came off in the 54th minute, replaced by Shane Gates. Sykes stayed on for the duration of the game, despite hurting his shoulder in the 67th minute, as the substitutes' bench had already been called up and there was no-one left to replace him.

    Solomons said props Kevin Buys (slight rib injury) and Schalk Ferreira (stiff back) were being assessed by the medical team and undergoing a bit of rehabilitation, but would be eligible for selection.

    The clash at Newlands kicks off at 17:05 on Saturday.
