Stormers lose Carr to injury

    Cape Town - Stormers loose forward Nizaam Carr will fly home to Cape Town from Perth due to a shoulder injury he picked up in the 57-31 victory against the Rebels in Melbourne.

    Carr left the field at AAMI Park in the 36th minute on Saturday, and will see a specialist in Cape Town after further assessment by the DHL Stormers medical staff ruled him out of the clash with the Force this weekend.

    There will be no replacement flown out to Perth as Stormers Head Coach Robbie Fleck is happy with the cover he has at his disposal.

    "We brought 16 forwards with us on tour initially, so we feel we have enough cover and will not need an extra player to fly out for this match.

    "Our focus is on the Force this weekend, and the players are determined to build on our performance against the Rebels to make it two wins from our two games in Australia," he said.
