Brits out of Sharks showdown

The Stormers were rocked with the withdrawal of Schalk Brits from Saturday’s Super 14 match against the Sharks in Durban.

Brits has flu and did not travel with the team to Durban, a Stormers official statement said.

Hanyani Shimange will start against the Sharks.

It is a blow for the Stormers and also for those who have included Brits in their fantasy league team, most notably ME!
