Scan reveals Habana injury
Cape Town - Stormers coach Allister Coetzee has confirmed that Springbok wing Byran Habana
will be out of rugby for 10 weeks after his team's 36-34 Vodacom Super Rugby win over the Chiefs this past weekend.
Habana underwent a scan after suffering a knee injury on Saturday. Habana has partially torn his medial collateral ligament in his left knee.
"When you lose a Springbok and a quality player like Bryan (Habana) it's never an ideal situation, but we're getting Jaco Taute back. Gerhard van den Heever played very, very well when he came on, and Gio Aplon played just as well, so we have enough replacements there," said Coetzee.
"We wish Bryan well for a speedy recovery and when he returns he'll be back in the mix, but our focus is fully on the replacements now," added the Stormers coach.
"The bye has come at a good time for us, as it will allow these few injury niggles that we have to clear up and, importantly, it will also allow us to take stock of where we're at after our first three games."
