Pretorius not ready for Crusaders




Lions captain and star fly-half Andr’ Pretorius has not recovered from a hamstring tear that has meant he is yet to make an appearance in this year’s Super 14.

Initial reports were that Saturday’s match against the Crusaders would see the Springbok at the helm for the Johannesburg-based side.

This was not to be.

A scan on Tuesday revealed that the tear has not healed, and coach Eugene Eloff will be unable to select his injury-prone talisman for Saturday’s tough fixture.

The ability to ignite an attack as well as his kicking out of hand will be sorely missed.

Once again the Lions have said that he should be back next week, when they leave South African shores and head Down Under.
