WP U21 lock breaks neck

The incident in which JD Schickerling broke his neck while playing for WP U21 against the Blue Bulls at Loftus.

It occurred in the fourth minute of last Saturday's match when the 19-year-old Junior Bok was attempting to catch the ball from a restart.

His head collided with the shoulder of Bulls lock Irne Herbst and afterwards the other Bulls lock, Marvin Orie, grabbed Schickerling in a headclamp before hurling him to the ground.

Orie received a one-week suspension for the dangerous tackle.
