Stormers' centre Damian de Allende is looking ahead instead of dwelling too much on the injury which forced him to withdraw from the Bok squad.
De Allende was set to feature prominently in the Boks' Test series against the World XV, Wales and Scotland this month, but suffered a medial knee ligament injury in the Stormers' 21-19 victory over the Sharks in Durban on Saturday.
The 22-year-old posted this photo on Instagram with the caption: 'First bath with a cast on and now it's time to chill out. Hoping for a speedy and successful recovery! Thank you for all the messages, blessings and support. Hope you all have a great week. #roadtorecovery #cast #ifeellikeamummy'.
