Cheetahs sweat on Petersen
Bloemfontein - Cheetahs wing Sergeal Petersen will undergo a
scan on Monday in order to assess a quad muscle injury which he sustained
during their victory over the Southern Kings on Saturday.
Petersen is currently in the form of his life and with
Ireland looming around the corner it is hoped that the injury will not get in
the way of Springbok colours.
Coach Franco Smith gave a positive outlook when asked about
Petersen’s injury: “He stretched his quad a bit and we don’t think it is too
serious but we will have to wait for the scan before we know for sure”
The Cheetahs have a bye this weekend before they travel to
Cape Town to play the Stormers and if the injury is not too serious Petersen
will be expected to get his team over the tryline as he did against the Kings
