Aplon setback for Stormers
- 30 Mar 2014
Stormers fullback Gio Aplon will be sidelined for six to eight weeks with a disclocated elbow.
Aplon injured his arm in the 23rd minute of Saturday's game against the Reds in Brisbane. While his season is not over, he will be out of action for some time.
'Gio dislocated his left elbow and, at this stage, it seems that he will be out of action for six to eight weeks,' said Stormers coach Allister Coetzee. 'It's obviously a blow to lose someone of his ability and experience, but one bit of solace is that it's not a fracture.'
Aplon has signed with Grenoble and will link up with the French club at the end of the Vodacom Super Rugby competition.
