Jean returns to training

Springbok captain Jean de Villiers trained with the Stormers during Monday's practice session.

The midfielder, who suffered a serious knee injury against Wales last November, is expected to return to action in mid-July.

According to Netwerk24, De Villiers ran at pace through a Robbie Fleck backline session. The player was moving freely, looking in no apparent discomfort throughout a fast moving, if not physical session.

'He’s been looking sharp at training,' said Stormers coach Allister Coetzee. 'But it’s definitely not the time for Jean to be part of any contact situations yet.'
