Toulouse sign Kings prop
- 01 Sep 2013
Schalk Ferreira will join French club Toulouse as an injury replacement.
Toulouse suffered a spate of injuries in the 40-3 thrashing of Bayonne last weekend.
Vasil Kakovin ruptured the cruciate ligaments in his right knee, fellow prop Antoine Guillamon fractured a bone in his right hand, and hooker Jaba Bregvadze is also out for a long time with a triple fracture of the mastoid (bony prominence located behind the ear).
'They will be arriving on Monday,' Toulouse's head of recruitment Jean-Michel Rancoule told AFP, referring to Ferreira and South African youngster Martens van den Heever, who will join the youth academy.

Bank on Boks to stand up in Salta
THE MONEY MAN is putting R2,000 on the Springboks to beat Argentina comfortably in Salta on Saturday.
Stop making excuses
Stop excusing Allister Coetzee’s obvious limitations on his late appointment as Bok coach. Stop excusing every Springbok defeat on referees, weather conditions or the age-old South African retreat that the rugby gods have an issue with the Springboks, writes MARK KEOHANE.
Sergeal can wing it for Boks
Allister Coetzee has to be brave enough to make bold selections for the Springboks’ end-of-year tour, including calling up Cheetahs wing Sergeal Petersen and overseas-based Frans Steyn, JP Pietersen, Duane Vermeulen and Schalk Burger, writes CRAIG LEWIS.
