The Cats have picked up injuries to Springbok winger Ashwin Willemse, Springbok hooker Lukas van Biljon, Gordon Gilfillan and Springbok prop Lawrence Sephaka who all got injured in the match against the Sharks over the weekend.

Willemse needs surgery on his knee and will miss the remainder of the rugby season. Gilfillan could be out for six to eight weeks, also with a knee injury, and Van Biljon injured his ankle.

Wylie Human or John Daniels could be called up for Willemse or Grant Esterhuizen could be moved to the wing.

The Cats take on the Bulls at Loftus this weekend. Last night Robbie Williams performed in front of 60 000 fans at Loftus so the field could be a little damaged.
