INJURY UPDATE: The Southern Kings will be without the services of lock Irne Herbst for their last Super Rugby match.

The powerful lock, Herbst sustained a concussion during their historic 31-30 win against the Bulls in Pretoria at the weekend.

The side already lost fellow lock Wilhelm van der Sluys - also due to concussion - in their previous match against Jaguares in Buenos Aires a fortnight ago.

"We returned from Pretoria with only one injury concern," Southern Kings team doctor Konrad von Hagen confirmed.

"Our lock, Irne Herbst, suffered a concussion and will be following the usual return to play protocol.

"Wilhelm van der Sluys is in the final phase of his return to play protocol. We will monitor him closely this week and make a final call on his availability for this week’s match later on in the week,"

Von Hagen also confirmed that there were no other injury concerns ahead of the season’s final match.

The Eastern Cape side will take on fellow South African side the Cheetahs at the Nelson Mandela Stadium on Friday.
