Sharks suffer double injury blow




The Sharks have paid a hefty price for their Super Rugby victory over the Highlanders as Cobus Reinach and Philip van der Walt have returned to South Africa injured.

The Sharks beat the Highlanders 14-15 in Dunedin but Reinach and Van der Walt’s tours are over.

Scrumhalf Reinach injured his knee in the match and will be replaced by Stefan Ungerer.

Philip van der Walt suffered a neck injured and Giant Mtyanda has been called to New Zealand as replacement.

The Sharks play Super Rugby’s leading team the Chiefs in New Plymouth this weekend before returning home to face the Hurricanes.
