INJURY UPDATE: The Golden Lions confirmed that prop Julian Redelinghuys underwent a successful neck operation on Sunday.

Redelinghuys was stretchered off the field in the 44th minute of his team's 55-17 defeat against the Free State Cheetahs in the Currie Cup semifinal in Bloemfontein.

Redelinghuys sustained a dislocation of his neck at C5/6 level when he collided with Cheetahs hooker Torsten van Jaarsveld. 

He had minimal temporary weakness of his left arm. He was in traction at a Bloemfontein hospital and underwent surgery on Sunday morning to reduce the dislocation and stabilise it. He is expected to make a full recovery.

"Julian's operation went well on Sunday morning. He had a fusion at C5/6 level. If all goes well, he should be able to return home later this week," said Golden Lions team doctor Rob Collins.
