    2017-04-03 15:47

    Cape Town - The Chiefs will be without Nepo Laulala and Sam Cane when they face the Stormers at Newlands on Saturday after both players were ruled out with concussion.

    Kick-off is at 17:15.

    The pair were concussed in the 28-12 victory over the Bulls in Hamilton last Saturday and do not board the plane with their team-mates for their two-match tour of South Africa.

    The Chiefs will be keeping their fingers crossed that Cane will be available for their second match on tour against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on April 8 (15:05).

    Other players unavailable for selection include Brad Weber, Mitchell Graham, Nathan Harris, James Tucker, Glen Fisiiahi, Chase Tiatia, Charlie Ngatai, Tim Nanai-Williams, Liam Polwart, Michael Allardice and the banned Johnny Faauli.

    Both the Chiefs and the Stormers are currently unbeaten in this year's tournament.
