Another Whiteley blow for Lions

INJURY UPDATE: Lions captain Warren Whiteley is doubtful for his team’s Super Rugby Round 14 clash against the Highlanders at Ellis Park.

Whiteley has a bruised knee and a decision on his availability will be made later this week.

He sat out training on Monday and will do so again on Tuesday.

Whiteley already missed a large chunk of the 2019 Super Rugby season because of a pectoral injury.

He picked up that injury in the Round Two fixture against the Stormers and then returned to action in his team’s 23-17 win against the Chiefs in Round 10 before missing the match against the Crusaders in Round 11.

Whiteley returned to action once again last weekend in the narrow 29-28 win over the Waratahs.
