The Sharks have suffered a blow ahead of their fifth round Super Rugby match against the Reds as Pieter-Steph du Toit has had to withdraw.

Du Toit was named in the Sharks starting line up to face the Reds but suffered a knee injury in training which is expected to rule him out for a week.

The extent of the damage has not yet been fully confirmed but the Sharks don't think it is too serious at this stage and are waiting for the results from a scan.

Stephan Lewies will move off the replacements bench and coach Jake White will name a replacement for Lewies in due course.
