Etzebeth blow for Stormers

Eben Etzebeth is set to be ruled out until at least April because of shoulder and back injuries.

The Bok captain was forced off the field just before half-time in the match against Wales in Cardiff last month, after he sustained a nerve injury that caused severe pain in his left shoulder.

He has a conservative return date set for May and should be available for the Boks’ three-Test series against England in June.
