Injury rules Sergeal Petersen out of JWC
May 28, 2013
Wing Sergeal Petersen was on Monday withdrawn from the South Africa Under-20 Junior World Championship (JWC) squad because of a hamstring injury.

Petersen sustained the injury during a Vodacom Super Rugby match between the Southern Kings and the Waraths. Former SA Schools utility back Jessie Kriel (Vodacom Blue Bulls) will replace Petersen and is set to join the squad on Tuesday morning in Stellenboch.

“Sergeal underwent a MRI scan today and it was confirmed that he still has significant structural damage to his hamstring. He will require rehabilitation for a further 3 to 4 four weeks, which rules him out of the JWC pools matches,” explained Dr Phato Zondi, the SA Under-20 team doctor.

Dawie Theron, the SA Under-20 coach, described the withdrawal as a major disappointment for the team. “Sergeal is such a talented player and he was really looking forward to play for the Junior Springboks. We all feel gutted for him and want to wish him a speedy recovery,” said Theron.

The Junior Springboks travel on Thursday to France.
