Bad break for Grey High lock
- 29 Jul 2013
Martin Groenewald is likely to be discharged from hospital today after being operated on following a sickening double break in his right leg against Grey College in Bloemfontein.
The Herald reports that Groenewald broke the tibia and fibula in the shin area of the leg. He was taken to Bloemfontein Mediclinic and operated upon immediately.
Grey High coach Rory Duncan said the operation was a success.
'I spoke to Martin's father this morning and it seems the operation was a success. We are now awaiting feedback from the doctors to see just how long it will take for him to recover. If all goes well he should be discharged [today],' Duncan told The Herald.
