Stormers have been dealt an injury blow in the ongoing Rainbow Cup SA with fly-half Kade Wolhuter confirming that he picked up an ACL injury against the Sharks and is set to miss the remainder of the season.
Wolhuter ruptured his knee ligaments during the Pro14 Rainbow Cup SA encounter where he was replaced in the 55th minute by Abner van Reenen.
"The game we love so much is full of the most extreme ups and downs," Kade Wolhuter wrote on his Instagram.
"Unfortunately yesterday afternoon's opening game of the Rainbow Cup SA vs the Sharks will be my last for the season after tearing my ACL during the match.
"Really gutted to be leaving the boys @dhlstormers so early on in the season but at the same time looking forward to the adventure to getting back out on the pitch.
"Thank you so much for all the messages of support, they don’t go unnoticed!"
