Springbok centre and Stormers captain Jean de Villiers will know on Thursday whether is fit enough to face the Reds in a Super 14 match at Newlands on Friday night.

According to the Stormers website, De Villiers has a 50% chance of playing – and a decision on his availability will probably only be taken on Thursday.

De Villiers suffered a blow to the head in the match against the Sharks last weekend. De Viliers said that de Villiers is being closely monitored.

“It is not a serious injury. A this stage I would say that his chances of playing are 50-50,” Stormers media liaison Frikkie Eramus told the Stormers website.

Erasmus reported no other casualties form Saturday’s game, but said that wing Sireli Naqelevuki who missed Saturday’s game with a chest injury, would also know on Thursday whether he would be fit to play.
