Stormers lose Carr

Stormers loose forward Nizaam Carr will be flying home after suffering a shoulder injury against the Rebels in Melbourne.

Carr left the field in the 36th minute on Saturday, and will see a specialist in Cape Town after further assessment by the medical staff ruled him out of the clash with the Force this weekend.

There will be no replacement flown out to Perth as Stormers coach Robbie Fleck is happy with the cover at his disposal.

'We brought 16 forwards with us on tour initially, so we feel we have enough cover and will not need an extra player to fly out for this match,' he said. 'Our focus is on the Force this weekend, and the players are determined to build on our performance against the Rebels to make it two wins from our two games in Australia.'
