    Rohan set for long stint on sidelines

    2017-04-18 08:37

    Cape Town - Lions centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg is set for an extended period on the sidelines after sustaining a knee injury at the weekend.

    The Springbok centre left the field in the fifth minute of his side’s 29-16 Super Rugby win over the Stormers at Newlands.

    According to IOL Sport, Janse van Rensburg tore the collateral ligament in his right knee and also damaged the posterior lateral corner in the same knee.

    He will be assessed by a knee specialist this week but is expected to miss a large part of the 2017 season.

    The 22-year-old was one of the star performers for the Lions over the past two seasons and made his Springbok debut against Wales in Cardiff last year.

    The Lions will take some solace from the fact that his replacement on Saturday, Harold Vorster, produced a man-of-the-match performance which included a spectacular solo try.
