Devastating season-ending blow for Stormers
INJURY UPDATE: The Stormers have been dealt a cruel blow as flyhalf Kade Wolhuter has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
Wolhuter sustained the injury during the Stormers’ 30-33 defeat to the Sharks in the Rainbow Cup opener in Cape Town on Saturday.
The flyhalf, who added 11 points to the Stormres’ tally, was stretchered off the field with a serious-looking knee injury midway through the second half.
Wolhuter was replaced by Abner van Reenen
The 19-year-old confirmed via Instagram that he will miss the rest of the reason due to a ruptured ACL.
He is expected to be sidelined for six to nine months.
