Cape Town – Two Kings players
sustained concussions during the match against the Hurricanes in Wellington on
Friday last week.
In the first half of the game, Kings wing Luzuko Vulindlu came off the field in the 37th minute for a
concussion test, and was replaced by JP du Plessis.
In the second half Elgar Watts
had to come on to replace Du Plessis in the 60th minute, as Du Plessis had also
sustained a concussion.
Head coach Deon Davids said
both players were still being assessed.
“We also have a few other
niggles following the tour, but the players are being seen to by our medical
staff and are being attended to,” he said.
Davids said the two players who
had been sent home following the game against the Crusaders, Schalk Ferreira
and Thembelani Bholi, were also being assessed ahead of the game against the
Sunwolves on Saturday, April 2.
