Watson fit for Force

Luke Watson will recover from the hamstring tweak that forced him out of the Stormers’ clash with the Cheetahs in the Vodacom Super 14 at halftime.

Watson, who has been amongst the team’s stand-out performers in their stuttering campaign, did not reappear for the second half against the boys from Bloem in a precautionary measure.

A day of rest and further diagnosis, however, has shown the injury to be a tweak and thus Watson is expected to recover sufficiently to face the Force in Perth in a fortnight.

Watson will not train this week before the squad depart for their tour on Thursday.
