Ballet fails to cure Rassie
February 9, 2000
The captain of the Cats Super 12 rugby union team Rassie Erasmus has been ruled out of the first two months of the competition because of a pelvic muscle injury.
The Springbok loose forward underwent an operation on Wednesday after other remedies -- including ballet classes -- failed to rectify the problem.
An acting captain will be announced by Cats coach Laurie Mains later. The Super 12 starts on February 25.
