    Ndungane out of hospital

    2011-03-06 17:41
    Melbourne - There was good news for Sharks' dreadlocked wing Odwa Ndungane when he was released from hospital after being stretchered off against the Western Force following a spear tackle in their Vodacom Super Rugby match in Perth on Saturday.

    The Sharks won 39-12 to remain unbeaten after three matches in the tournament.

    Ndungane had to be stretchered off in the 17th minute of the game following a spear tackle from Rory Sidey which has earned the Force player a date with the Disciplinary Officer.

    According to the Sharks website, Ndungane was taken to hospital, but was later released and returned to the camp.

    “We're hoping he will be fine,” said coach John Plumtree from the team's base in Melbourne where they will be preparing ahead of Friday match against the Rebels.

    “A lot of it was just precautionary. He underwent tests in hospital and was 100% in the morning. We will test him during week to make sure he's all fine for Friday.”

    The Sharks other two matches on their Australasian tour are against the Chiefs (March 18) and Crusaders (March 25).

    “Advantage is a great part of rugby, says Tank Lanning, but it allows for lots of personal interpretation, hence Victor Matfield’s tirade. ”
