Sharks lose Jordaan for season

Sharks centre Paul Jordaan has been ruled out of the rest of the Super Rugby season after injuring his knee in Rugby Injurytraining.

Jordaan will leave the Sharks camp, currently in Manly Australia later this week to undergo surgery.

“We’re very disappointed to lose Paul Jordaan, he’s out for the rest of the season, Paul suffered an ACL (knee ligament) injury (6-9 months out). He was playing touch rugby, we were just having a light run, jogging out the jetlag and he stepped, was caught and his knee collapsed.  It’s a big blow for us, we’re all disappointed for Paul and for the team.  It’s the last thing you want, the side is already depleted and to lose a guy in your first training session is pretty depressing, but there’s not much we can do.” Said coach John Plumtree.

“Hopefully we’ll get Lwazi back and there’s a possibility of bringing JP back into the midfield, we’ll make those decisions once we know the status with Lwazi.  We might be forced to play JP in the midfield, it’s not his primary position obviously, but he did a good job for us last year with his x-factor.”  Added Plumtree.
