Injury boost for Stormers

Scarra Ntubeni, Dan du Plessis, Rynhardt Elstadt and Steph de Wit have overcome their respective injuries and will return to full training next week.

The Stormers confirmed on Tuesday that Ntubeni (achilles injury), Du Plessis (shoulder), Elstadt (rib) and De Wit (ankle) have completed their recovery rehabilitation and will start training with the rest of the Super Rugby squad next week. 

Flyhalf Jean-Luc du Plessis will undergo surgery on his hips later in the week and will be out of action for the rest of the year. 

Meanwhile, centre Huw Jones is making steady progress following his hamstring injury and is expected to be available for selection in the next five weeks.

Flyhalf Rob du Preez (torn pectoral muscle), lock Jan de Klerk (broken toe) and flank Cobus Wiese (shoulder) are all expected to return in three months' time.
