The Stormers are set to be without lock Eben Etzebeth for this week's game against the Sunwolves after he suffered an injury to his calf.

Etzebeth sustained the problem during training on Monday and the Cape Town side will send the Springbok for a scan to assess the damage.

One positive from the session was the news that flying full-back Cheslin Kolbe could be back in action at Newlands following his head knock.

"Cheslin Kolbe is fine and he is passed fit to play, but today it looks like we may have lost Eben Etzebeth who hurt his calf," said head coach Robbie Fleck, with the Stormers looking to continue their impressive start to the season.
