Kings flyhalf Oliver Zono will miss Saturday’s Pro14 return leg against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.
Zono injured his knee during the Kings’ 45-21 loss to the Cheetahs in Port Elizabeth last Saturday.
‘Oliver has damaged his knee but we’ll only be able to confirm the severity of the injury after further examination and scans have been completed,’ said Kings doctor Clement Plaatjies. ‘I suspect there’s ligament and meniscal damage and if that’s the case then he will be unavailable for selection for quite a while.’
There was, however, some positive news with regards to lock Stephan Greeff.
‘We’ve stitched up the cut above his eye and confirmed there’s no concussion so he will be available for this weekend’s game,’ said Plaatjies, who also confirmed that prop Entienne Swanepoel has returned to full training after six weeks out with a knee injury.
