Western Province look set to lose their second captain this Currie Cup season.
Juan de Jongh is still a long term concern after the knee injury he picked up mid-August against the Free State Cheetahs, and now Nizaam Carr faces a spell on the sidelines too.
The WP No. 8 left the field towards the end of the first half in his side’s eventual 33-15 win over Griquas at Newlands on Saturday, and coach John Dobson confirmed after the match that his skipper was doubt for next weekend’s trip to the Sharks.
“Very much so,” was his response when asked if Carr was now in doubt for the Sharks game.
“He’s pulled a hamstring. He doesn’t look too comfortable.”
Scrumhalf and man-of-the-match Nic Groom took over the captaincy in Carr’s absence.
More on Carr’s injury is expected to be known on Monday.
