Johannesburg - The Golden Lions medical team released an injury update ahead of Saturday’s Currie Cup clash against Western Province at Ellis Park.
In the backline, scrumhalf Ross Cronje will be unavailable for up to three weeks, having injured his knee against the Blue Bulls at Loftus on Saturday.
Centre Alwyn Hollenbach suffered a calf strain during a training session this week. His injury will continue to be monitored and further assessed.
Up front, No 8 Derick Minnie - who captained the Lions against the Bulls last week - injured his hand in the match at Loftus Versfeld and will also be out for up to three weeks.
Meanwhile, flank Jaco Kriel, who fell awkwardly on his calf during Tuesday’s training session, will need to pass a fitness test in order to be cleared for Saturday’s clash, which kicks off at 17:05.
