CONFIRMED: Kwagga to miss rest of the Super Rugby season
INJURY UPDATE: Lions will have to take on the Bulls without the influential Albertus Smith.
The 25-year-old limped off with a hamstring injury in the 26th minute of the Lions 17-37 Round 17 loss the Hurricanes in Johannesburg on Saturday.
The Lions revealed that Smith underwent scans on Monday which confirmed that sustained a grade two hamstring injury.
Consequently, the former BlitzBoks star will now be sidelined for the rest of the Lions’ Super Rugby campaign.
The other injury concerns are Stephan Lewies and Sti Sithole.
Lewies was withdrawal on the eve of the defeat to Hurricanes after picking up a knee injury during training. The 27-year-old has also undergone scans and will be re-assessed next week.
While loosehead prop Sithole, who suffered a hamstring strain in training on June 4, will also miss the Bulls clash. However, the prop is expected to be fit next week.
