    Sharks sweat over Lambie

    Cape Town - The Sharks could take on the Cheetahs in their Super Rugby clash in Bloemfontein on Saturday without the services of flyhalf Patrick Lambie.

    Beeld
    reports that the Springbok suffered concussion in their 53-11 mauling of the Force in Durban on Saturday.

    But according to Sharks team doctor, Ewoudt van der Linde, it's not a "bad concussion" and Lambie's condition has since improved.

    "However, there is a Boksmart protocol we have to follow with such an injury and we'll need to strictly monitor him according to those standards.

    "Therefore a decision will only be made by Thursday at the earliest."

    Van der Linde said they may even decide to make a decision as late as Saturday morning, which could see them travel to Bloemfontein with 23 players.

    Apart from Lambie's injury, fullback Louis Ludik sustained a dead leg against the Force and would need to pass a fitness test on Thursday.

    The clash at the Free State Stadium kicks off at 17:05 on Saturday.
