Leyds boost for Stormers

    2015-04-28 07:22

    Cape Town - Utility back Dillyn Leyds is back at training and will be available for the Stormers' Super Rugby clash against the Cheetahs this weekend.

    Leyds missed his team’s 15-13 win over the Bulls at the weekend with a shoulder injury but he passed a fitness test at the High Performance Centre (HPC) in Bellville on Monday.

    The Stormers will head to Bloemfontein on Friday ahead of their clash at the Free State Stadium on Saturday (17:05 kick-off).

    The full Stormers injury report on Monday:

    - Utility back Dillyn Leyds (shoulder) is fit for selection after coming through a fitness test and training on Monday.

    - No 8 Duane Vermeulen took a blow to his shoulder against the Bulls, but it was nothing more than a stinger. He is 100% fit.

    - Vice-captain and centre Juan de Jongh did not train on Monday - as the coaching and medical staff continue to manage him - but he is 100% fit to play.

    - Loose forward Nizaam Carr (knock to his knee) and centre Damian de Allende (recovery day) did not train, but neither are in doubt for this weekend.

    - Flank Michael Rhodes (hamstring) started treadmill running on Monday. He could be back after the bye weekend (May 15-17).

    - Utility back Jaco Taute (knee) has re-joined full training and could get some game time in the Vodacom Cup next weekend.

    - Wing Kobus van Wyk will be in a knee brace for one more week before his rehabilitation commences. He is still out of action for another five weeks.
