Lions lose Coetzee

The Lions have suffered a significant blow after fullback Andries Coetzee suffered an injury in training that is set to rule him out of action for six to eight weeks.

Coetzee has played off the bench in the last couple of games, with Jaco van der Walt starting in the No 15 jersey, but he is an important player in the Lions’ back division.

In further unfortunate injury news for the Lions, prop Julian Redelinghuys (wrist injury) and Malcolm Marx (neck) are set for a couple of weeks on the sidelines.
