Stormers get De Allende Super Rugby boost

Damian de Allende will return to Super Rugby training

Cape Town based Super Rugby team the Stormers have been given a boost for the play offs as Springbok centre Damian de Allende will return to full training with his team mates.

De Allende has recovered from a quad injury which is a timely boost following injuries to midfielders Juan de Jongh and Shaun Treeby sustained in the victory against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.

De Jongh left the field early in the game with concussion, which will rule him out of the clash with the Sunwolves at Newlands on Saturday, while Treeby will be sidelined for two weeks with a rib injury.

Fullback SP Marais injured his knee after landing awkwardly and sustained no major ligament damage, but his progress will be monitored weekly as to how he responds to treatment.

Props Oli Kebble (thigh) and Ali Vermaak (calf) are still recovering from their respective injuries.

Both players face a race against time to be fit for the Super Rugby quarterfinals.
