    Kings prop doubtful for Stormers encounter

    2016-07-11 18:32

    Cape Town - Southern Kings head coach Deon Davids has confirmed that, while a number of players had sustained bumps and bruises during the hard fought game against the Lions, most were available for selection against the Stormers game this weekend.

    Prop Tom Botha however, might not be available for selection as he was battling with his back and knee following the game against the Lions.

    Davids said a few of the players were also showing early symptoms of flu, and were being treated and rested ahead of the Southern Kings final clash on Saturday.

    "We are being preemptive, and are resting the players concerned, to give them a chance to recover fully before the game," he said.

    Davids said of concern was players in the current Currie Cup team who had sustained injuries, limiting selection options ahead of Saturday's clash, including Tazz Fuzani, who had a foot injury as well as Cornell Hess and JP Jonck, who had both sustained concussions in the match.

    All three players are part of the expanded Southern Kings squad.

    Davids confirmed Jurgen Visser was still being evaluated under the medical protocols for concussion.
