Coetzee injury worry for Lions

    2017-04-11 11:34

    Johannesburg - The Lions are stressing over the fitness of fullback Andries Coetzee ahead of this Saturday's Super Rugby clash against the Stormers in Cape Town. 

    Coetzee is battling a hamstring injury and he will undergo a fitness test in the week before a decision is made on his availability. 

    Springbok wing Ruan Combrinck, meanwhile, is expected to be about two weeks away from a return following his lengthy lay-off with a shoulder injury. 

    Jaco van der Walt (foot, four weeks) and Dylan Smith (shoulder, six months) are the other long-term injuries. 

    The Lions have lost just once this Super Rugby season while the Stormers, who beat the Chiefs 34-26 this past weekend, are undefeated. 

    Kick-off on Saturday is at 17:15.
