Hand injury hits Ferreira

Date published: May 3 2016

The Kings have suffered a setback after loosehead prop Schalk Ferreira sustained a hand injury during last week's clash with the Jaguares.

Head coach Deon Davids confirmed the news with Ferreira expected to miss at least this weekend's fixture against the Blues at Eden Park.

"Schalk will be going for scans today and we should know the extent of his injury later in the week," coach Davids told the Kings website.

Davids added that second-row Schalk Oelofse, who sustained a concussion during the team's match against the Bulls two weeks ago, has been evaluated by the medical team and would be returning to training this week.
