Radebe back in action for EP

The EP Elephants have received a boost as captain Inny Radebe has made a stunning recovery from injury to start against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

Radebe was expected to be ruled out for the entire Preparation Series after injuring his hand in EP’s opening loss to the Vodacom Bulls in Pretoria last month.

However, the 26-year-old has made an early recovery and will start as captain in the Elephants’ final series fixture against the Cheetahs.

EP have also been boosted by the return of flank CJ Velleman, but will be without impressive young wing Christopher Hollis, who suffered a leg injury in last week’s loss to Griquas.
