The Stormers will have to negotiate the rest of the season without Kade Wolhuter after the flyhalf ruptured his knee ligaments against the Sharks on Saturday.
Wolhuter suffered the injury during the Stormers’ Rainbow Cup loss to the Sharks at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday and had to be stretchered from the field.
On Sunday morning, the 19-year-old confirmed via his instagram account that he will miss the rest of the season.
‘The game we love so much is full of the most extreme ups and downs,’ he wrote in his post.
‘Unfortunately yesterday afternoons opening game of the Rainbow Cup SA vs the Sharks will be my last for the season after tearing my ACL during the match
‘Really gutted to be leaving the boys @dhlstormers so early on in the season but at the same time looking forward to the adventure to getting back out on the pitch.
‘Thank you so much for all the messages of support, they don’t go unnoticed!’
