Injury robs Edinburgh of two SA props
INJURY UPDATE: Edinburgh has lost the services of two of their South African props, Boan Venter and Luan de Bruin, for the rest of the season.
The Scottish outfit confirmed that the two players had both undergone “successful surgeries”.
The South African pair were both injured in the Challenge Cup win against Pau in Edinburgh earlier this month.
Former Cheetahs loosehead Venter, who has scored six tries in 25 appearances for Edinburgh, suffered a knee injury.
Former Leicester and Cheetahs forward De Bruin suffered a hamstring injury on his eighth appearance for Edinburgh.
Over the weekend Edinburgh was pushed all the way by basement club Zebre in a 29-26 victory that strengthens their grasp on a United Rugby Championship play-off place.
Their unbeaten record at home this season remains intact, and the bonus point keeps them in the hunt for a top-four finish, but the hosts made heavy weather of the fixture.
