Tuks plagued by injuries, sickness

Posted on July 20, 2010

The head of Tuks 1’s medical team, Pieter du Plessis confirmed that fullback Boeboes Coetzee and wingers Dirk Dippenaar, GD Kotzee, John-Wessel Bell as well as centre Johan Booysen will all be sidelined due to injuries.

To add to this already dire situation, centre Gertjie Smith is also a doubtful starter as he has flue and was still in bed yesterday.

Another Tuks head ache is that their captain and No 8, Marius Weber fell ill over the weekend with flue and is involved in his own race against time.

Tuks 1 will name their 22 tomorrow.
