More bad news for Sharks
May 10, 2000
It seems that things cannot get any worse for the Sharks, with the latest news that Springbok second rower Albert van den Berg will be out of action for up to four weeks.
The lanky former Griquas star left the field only five minutes into the clash with the Chiefs - lost 44-31 - with a damaged AC joint in his shoulder. That not only rules him out of the remainder of the Super 12, but also the first couple of test matches against Canada (in East London on June 10) and England (in Pretoria on June 17).
As was the case on Saturday, John Slade will partner skipper Mark Andrews in the second row.
