INJURY UPDATE: Southern Kings centre Luzuko Vulindlu is the only injury casualty from their Super Rugby match against the Stormers on Saturday.

Vulindlu sustained a concussion during their 10-41 defeat at the hands of the Cape Town-based team.  

The 29-year-old will go through the normal concussion protocol which requires a compulsory one week’s rest and will, therefore, be unavailable for selection which means he will miss the clash against his former side in the Sharks in Durban.

The Southern Kings are happy to have lock Mzwanele Zito and scrumhalf Louis Schreuder back at training this week. The pair sustained concussions against the Sunwolves in Singapore and will likely be available for selection this week should they get through their return to play protocol.

Locks Wandile Putuma and Sintu Manjezi, who have been recovering from knee niggles, have also fully recovered and are back at full training this week.

On the long-term injury list, flank CJ Velleman continues to make good progress with his knee rehabilitation and is expected back at training in April.

Lock Cameron Lindsay is doing well with his rehabilitation of his injured left knee which has ruled him out for 12 weeks.

Team doctor Konrad von Hagen is pleased with the progress being made by scrumhalf Rudi van Rooyen. The scrumhalf sustained an ankle injury in the match against the Sunwolves and required surgery in Pretoria last week.

Van Rooyen will be out of action for up to 12 weeks.
