Reds number eight Jake Schatz will be sidelined for up to six weeks after sustaining a knee injury in his side’s loss to the Bulls on Saturday.  

Flanker Michael Gunn will join his team-mates in Cape Town on Monday, after Schatz suffered a strained MCL in the Reds’ 41-22 defeat in Pretoria.

Schatz will return to Brisbane immediately to begin rehabilitation and is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks.

The Reds face the Stormers at Newlands Stadium this Saturday.
