Veteran Springbok fullback Percy Montgomery and flank Francois Louw are on their way back from the Stormers’ Australasian tour after sustaining injuries before this weekend’s Super 14 match against the Brumbies in Canberra.

Montgomery has a knee injury and Louw injured his ankle in Friday’s captain’s run.

Both will not be able to play again on the tour, with matches against the Hurricanes and the Highlanders following this weekend’s Brumbies encounter.

Both players will return home this weekend.

Louw, who was selected on the bench for the Brumbies match, will be replaced on tour by namesake Pieter Louw but no replacement will be flown out for Montgomery.

The fullback was not in this weekend’s match-22.
