Stormers get Marais back for quarterfinal

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 14:01

INJURY UPDATE: Stormers fullback Sarel Marais will be available for selection for his side's Super Rugby quarterfinal against the Chiefs at Newlands on Saturday.

Marais has recovered from his knee injury and he will give head coach Robbie Fleck another option for the outside backs division.

The Stormers will also have props Oliver Kebble and Alistair Vermaak back in the selection mix.

The duo should provide the Cape side with ample cover at loosehead after Steven Kitshoff was deemed ineligible for the play-offs.

Loose forward Rynhardt Elstadt and prop Wilco Louw are also available for selection after they sat out their side's 41-33 win over the Bulls last weekend.

Meanwhile, Kiwi centre Shaun Treeby is still struggling with a rib and won't be considered for this weekend's clash.

Scrumhalf, Dewaldt Duvenage (calf) will also be unavailable for the clash against the Chiefs.
