Jean worry for WP

Jean de Villiers is currently nursing a couple of injuries and could miss Western Province’s final league match against the Cheetahs.

According to WP management, the Bok captain has a slight hamstring niggle and a bit of swelling on the knee. At this point, these ailments are not believed to be serious, but De Villiers will be managed carefully in the build up to Saturday’s game.

In other injury news, flank Rynhardt Elstadt has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a rib injury. Gio Aplon has completed his rehabilitation of an injured ankle, but he may not be risked this weekend.

Flank Tyrone Holmes won’t be considered for the Cheetahs clash after undergoing an operation to fix his broken nose on Monday. Holmes is only expected to be back in 10 days’ time.
