Cheetahs worried about Wayne

Lock Wayne van Heerden is battling an ankle injury and may miss the Stormers match in Bloemfontein.

Cheetahs assistant coach Hawies Fourie told a number of players missed Monday’s training session because of niggling injuries, but at this stage Van Heerden is the only real concern. The Cheetahs are feeling the after effects of a taxing visit to Loftus Versfeld which ended 29-20 in favour of the Bulls.

‘We’ll give Wayne until Wednesday but his ankle is still very sore and stiff,’ Fourie said. ‘He injured it in the first half of the game and we took him off straight away. There’s still a chance he will recover so we’re giving him some time.’
