    Cape Town - Sharks loose forward Marcell Coetzee has returned home to Durban following a tour-ending injury suffered in his teams' 22-16 win over the Melbourne Rebels last Friday.

    According to the Sharks' Facebook page, Jacques Botes has been drafted in as a replacement for the remainder of the tour.

    The Sharks face the Brumbies in Canberra on Saturday (11:40 SA time), followed by matches in New Zealand against the Crusaders (Saturday, May 17 at 09:35) and Blues (Friday, May 23 at 09:35) in their remaining tour clashes.
