Vodacom Stormers prop Schalk Ferreira will not take part in the 2008 Vodacom Super 14. The young forward injured his neck towards the end of the 2007 season and came onto the field for the Vodacom Stormers in their 72-10 victory over Boland in Wellington last Saturday.

Following a scan earlier this week, Vodacom Stormers Commercial Manager Frikkie Erasmus confirmed that Ferreira will be sidelined for the entire season on the Stormers website.

The injury is considered serious and further medical opinions are being garnered.

Schalk made his senior provincial debut for Vodacom WP in 2005 against the Blue Bulls and played his first Vodacom Super 14 match against the Chiefs at Newlands last year.

The injury may force him to retire from all rugby.
