Stormers second-row duo Eben Etzebeth and Manuel Carizza are set to miss four and three weeks due to respective chest and shoulder injuries.

Springbok Etzebeth (chest injury) and Puma Carizza (shoulder) both suffered injuries during Friday’s 39-31 pre-season triumph against the Cheetahs.

Meanwhile, winger Kobus van Wyk has been ruled out for ten days with a minor calf strain, but could still come into contention for their 2015 season opener.

The Stormers kick-off in Pretoria against the Bulls on Saturday, February 14.
