Viljoen to front Hurricanes
Tue, 07 May 2013 16:48
Frans Viljoen will replace the injured Pieter Labuschagné in the Cheetahs’ Super Rugby clash against the Hurricanes in Bloemfontein on Friday.
Labuschagné will miss the match due to an elbow injury and coach Naka Drotské confirmed that Viljoen will be in starting line-up.
"Frans and Heins [Heinrich Brüssow] will start," Drotské told Volksblad.
"Frans is physical and the right guy to pick against a New Zealand team.
"Lappies [Labuschagné] is good in the line-outs and we'll miss his high work-rate, but there's nothing we can do about that."
Drotské added that Johannes Prinsloo will provide back row cover from the bench.
