Following the Sharks' defeat to the Cheetahs, there was more bad news on the injury front after Bok prop Tendai Mtawarira sustained a calf injury.

On-loan Lions debutant Andries Coetzee was also forced off the pitch with a suspected dislocated shoulder.

Sharks coach Plumtree said the injuries were not ideal ahead of their departure for their four-leg away tour to New Zealand and Australia.

"It's not looking good for Beast [Mtawarira] and he won't be on the plane tomorrow. He's probably out for four weeks," Plumtree said.

"I was really disappointed about Andries, because I thought he played really well too. He could be out for a couple of months."
