De Villiers back on the field soon




Stormers captain Jean de Villiers, who was carried off strapped to a stretcher on Saturday during the Super 14 match against the Sharks at Newlands, will be back on the field soon.

He was taken to hospital on Saturday as a precautionary measure but discharged later.

“I have spoken to the doctor and he has reassured me that it is nothing serious. Jean will be playing again as soon as he feels comfortable.


“We don’t know yet how long he will be out, but he was just taken to hospital as precaution and the tests were also precautionary,” Stormers manager Frikkie Erasmus told the official Stormers website on Sunday.

“He is stiff and sore but other than that it is nothing serious. It is definitely not concussion and he suffered more from whiplash. We will be monitoring his situation during the week,” said Erasmus.

De Villiers took a heavy knock to the head just after halftime. He was stretchered off and taken to hospital immediately with what seemed a serious neck injury and it was feared that he would be out for a long time.
