JD Moller and Brian Mujati will be given more time to recover ahead of a crucial forward battle against the Bulls.
Speaking to keo.co.za, Stormers media manager Frikkie Erasmus said the two props’ injuries will be monitored by the team doctor throughout the week. A decision will be made at a later stage on their availability for Saturday’s match at Loftus Versfeld.
While the front row pair are battling shoulder injuries that may affect the Stormers at scrum time, the Cape franchise’s proficiency at the breakdown could also take a knock. Schalk Burger has also been given time to recover from a calf injury. His failure to regain fitness will be a huge blow to the Stormers’ chances.
Coach Rassie Erasmus will name his team on Wednesday.
