Setback for Sergeal

Cheetahs wing Sergeal Petersen will be sidelined for between six and eight weeks after breaking his jaw against the Bulls.

Petersen left the field early in Saturday's pre-season game after colliding with a Bulls player.

In some good news for the Cheetahs, who lost 30-13 in Polokwane, scans showed that prop Maks van Dyk's neck injury, which saw him stretchered off the field, is not serious. 

The Cheetahs' next pre-season match is against the Stormers at Newlands on Friday night and Springboks Willie le Roux and Oupa Mohoje are both expected to play.
