Sharks suffer Reinach blow

    2015-05-05 09:02

    Cape Town - The Sharks have suffered a blow with the news that scrumhalf Cobus Reinach has broken his hand and will return home from their Australasian Super Rugby tour.

    Reinach left the field at half-time during the Sharks' 48-15 to the Highlanders in Dunedin last Friday.

    With scrumhalves Conrad Hoffmann and Stefan Ungerer already in New Zealand with the squad, the Sharks have opted to call up hooker Kyle Cooper as a replacement for Reinach in their touring squad, Netwerk24 reports.

    The Sharks face the Hurricanes in Wellington this Saturday (kick-off 09:35 SA time).

    They will conclude their tour with matches in Australia against the Waratahs (Sydney, May 16 - 11:40) and Reds (Brisbane, May 22 - 11:40).
