VIDEO: Stormers reveal the extent of flyhalf's injury lay-off

INJURY UPDATE: The Stormers will be without the services of their Junior Springbok captain and flyhalf Sacha Feinberg-Mngomezulu for a considerable period of time.


Stormers coach John Dobson reveals on Thursday that scans of the Baby Bok’s leg injury produced a mixed bag.

The 20-year-old does not require surgery.

“It has gone from a broken tibia to no surgery,” Dobson said, adding that it is a “huge boost” for the team.

“However, he is not going to be back till late January.”

The Baby Bok skipper, Feinberg-Mngomezulu, returned from the South African ‘A’ team’s tour to Ireland and England with a serious leg injury.

Feinberg-Mngomezulu sustained a leg injury while playing flyhalf for the SA ‘A’ against Bristol Bears last week.


While the outcome of his scans is a lot more positive, the Stormers will still feel his absence.

“Luckily Jean-Luc du Plessis has returned,” the coach said of the 28-year-old utility back, who has returned from a stint in Japan.

With experience of more than 50 games for Western Province and the Stormers, he will provide additional cover at flyhalf and fullback.
