The Stormers are sweating over the fitness of influential openside flanker Schalk Burger after he suffered a groin injury in training on Thursday.

Burger, 32, could now miss their Super Rugby Qualifier against the Brumbies on Saturday, with the back-row needing to pass a fitness test before the match.

According to reports, it is likely that Michael Rhodes would start in place of the Springbok, with Sikhumbuzo Notshe then coming onto the replacements bench.
