    Jantjies out of Sharks game

    2013-04-08 14:59
    Cape Town - Stormers flyhalf Elton Jantjies will miss their Super Rugby clash against the Sharks due to a knee injury, according to a report on the supersport.com website.

    Jantjies injured his knee during the Stormers' 26-24 loss to the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein. The pivot is, however, expected to be ready for their Australasian tour.

    “Elton is not available for this week but his injury is not as bad as some have perceived, and he will be ready to play in three weeks' time," said coach Allister Coetzee.

    "Hopefully that will mean he will be in the mix for our opening tour match. Elton has a medial ligament injury. It’s an old injury that he picked up, but fortunately it is not torn, there is just a bit of a strain.

    “It has nothing to do with the chest injury that placed him in doubt before the Cheetahs game. He got through the game without any ill effects from that complaint, and he put in some good tackles. It’s just unfortunate that now he has injured his knee.”

    With Jantjies out, Gary van Aswegen is expected to wear the No 10 jersey on Saturday.

    The Stormers also lost the services of fullback Jaco Taute in the Bloemfontein game. Taute severely damaged his anterior cruciate (ACL) knee ligaments when he was tackled by Cheetahs wing Willie le Roux midway through the first half of the Super Rugby clash.

    "Jaco is obviously the big injury as we are losing him for the rest of the season,” said Coetzee.

    Bryan Habana and Gerhard van den Heever (knee injuries), Tiaan Liebenberg (elbow), Eben Etzebeth (ankle), Peter Grant (ankle) and Schalk Burger (knee) are other injury casualties for the Cape side.

    The Stormers are currently 11th on the overall Super Rugby log, and second last in the South African Conference.

    The Stormers' clash against the Sharks kicks off at 17:05.
