Sharks' Frans Steyn out for six weeks

The Sharks say their Springbok back Frans Steyn has been sidelined for at least six weeks with a lower leg injury, putting his participation in South Africa's June internationals in doubt.

 

The Sharks said on Tuesday that Steyn sustained acute department syndrome in his lower left leg, which is swelling, and inflammation that needs surgery to release pressure around the muscles and nerves.

 

Steyn had surgery in Dunedin following the Sharks' Super Rugby loss to the Highlanders last Saturday and will return home from the tour. It was originally feared he had broken his leg.

 

The Sharks also said Springboks prop Tendai Mtawarira would be out for three weeks with a left calf muscle tear.

 

South Africa's international season kicks off in a month with a four-team tournament involving Scotland, Samoa and Italy.

 not as bad as originally thought. 

That offload pass to Bosman for the try gainst the highlanders was excellant.

He pulled in the whole defence.

Surely that would be compartment syndrome not department syndrome ? !

Hope thats the case but I think six weeks is optimistic. Knew some runners in college that had the same issue and it was a bugger to get right.

 

Of course Steyn will have the best of the best working with him.
