Muir sticks with the Cheetah-beaters as injuries sideline Steyn and Botha

2008-05-15 00:00

The Sharks will be without two key Springboks, centre Francois Steyn and tighthead prop BJ Botha, when they take on the Chiefs in tomorrow night’s vital Super 14 clash at Durban’s King’s Park.

Steyn damaged a rib cartilage against the Cheetahs last Saturday while Botha suffered a calf strain. Brad Barritt will return in midfield for Steyn with Jannie du Plessis replacing fellow-Springbok Botha at tighthead and Deon Carstens joining the bench. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
