Burger to be ready for Canes?

Stormers flanker Schalk Burger is likely to return to training on Tuesday following a strained groin in the 34-10 loss to the Lions on Saturday at Ellis Park.

Burger left the field on the 34th minute of the match after his injury, with Deon Fourie coming on to replace the vice-captain.

Argentina lock Manuel Carizza is the most doubtful player for Saturday’s clash against the Hurricanes at Newlands, after picking up a back injury.

Siya Kolisi suffered an AC joint injury and will be assessed ahead of the upcoming match.

Hooker Scarra Ntubeni also sat out of training on Monday due to an ankle concern, but should be able to play on Saturday.
