Springbok Jannie du Plessis has been ruled out of the Sharks match against the Brumbies on Saturday ‘ merely as a precautionary measure ‘ his place will be taken by Deon Carstens.

The Sharks assessed du Plessis at Thursday afternoon training and decided not to risk further injury by playing him according to the Sharks website.

Training is said to have gone well and both Keegan Daniel and captain Johann Muller completed the work-out without any problem.

‘We’re not concentrating overly on the log, we just know what we have to do, and if we achieve what we’ve set out to, we’ll get a home semi-final,’ explained coach Dick Muir.

‘We’d like to reward out loyal supporters with a home semi. We know we haven’t set the world alight in terms of bonus points, but the wins have been important for us.’
