Vermeulen out, Kolisi called up
Stormers no. 8 Duane Vermeulen has been ruled out for up to 6 to 8 weeks following ligament damage to his knee during the game in Bloemfontein on Saturday night.
This means that the fiery number 8 will miss both the semi’s and possible final of Super Rugby should the Stormers progress.
Allister Coetzee has sent an SOS to Siyamthanda Kolisi currently on duty in the Junior World Championship as cover in the loose-forwards, and he is expected to fly back to South Africa on Thursday.
Nick Koster will come in at number 8 for the Stormers and its expected that young Kolisi will provide cover from the bench.
