    Cape Town - Southern Kings head coach Deon Davids has confirmed that utility back Malcolm Jaer will be out for approximately six weeks following a broken hand sustained during their 45-10 defeat against the Lions on the weekend.

    In addition lock Schalk Oelofse will also miss the Kings' next match against Jaguares in South America.

    “Schalk Oelofse has also picked up a concussion during the game and will not be available for the tour to Argentina this weekend,” he said.

    Davids said Oelofse would be evaluated by the medical team on an ongoing basis in line with the head injury protocols and would only begin training again once he was cleared by the medical team.

    Davids confirmed that Sti Sithole, who had sustained an elbow injury during the Bulls game, and Edgar Marutlulle, who had sustained a knee injury, were both returning to training this week.

    "Both players are still being monitored and evaluated by the medical team," he said.

    The Kings' match against the Jaguares will kick off at 23:40 SA time on Saturday.
