Steenkamp suffers injury setback

De Kock Steenkamp will see specialists this week to discover the extent of an Achilles injury sustained in training.

The second row suffered the injury in one of his first sessions since arriving in the region last week and Medical Performance Manager, Chris Towers, said that it is too early to confirm the damage and course of treatment: 

“Having unfortunately sustaining the Achilles injury in training, De Kock will see specialists over the next few days so that we can ascertain the full extent of his injury. Only then will be in a position to discuss the appropriate course of treatment and any potential return to play date.”
