Stormers captain Siya Kolisi has been ruled out for the rest of the Vodacom Super Rugby campaign. DYLAN JACK reports.
Kolisi was carried off before half-time in the physical battle against the Highlanders at Newlands last weekend, which the Stormers went on to win.
He was sent for scans immediately after the match and could not perform his post-match media duties.
Unfortunately, the next time the flank will play will be in a Springbok jersey as coach Robbie Fleck confirmed he will not return before the end of the Super Rugby season.
In a further blow to the team, Pieter-Steph du Toit and Kobus van Dyk have also been ruled out with respective injuries.
Fleck is hopeful Du Toit will be able to make it back for the Stormers’ final fixture against the Sharks, but Van Dyk will be out for up to 12 weeks.
