The Sharks Super Rugby loss to the Bulls in Round 14 came at a cost as at least two players will miss this weekend’s Waratahs clash.
Sharks winger Odwa Ndungane has broken his hand and looks set to miss the next month of Super Rugby.
Ndungane will have surgery later this week after he broke his hand in the second half but had it strapped and played on.
Springbok tighthead prop Jannie du Plessis suffered a partial tear of the medial ligament in his right knee and is also looking at about a month out of rugby.
There are also concerns that centre Adrian Jacobs could be on the injured list as he is struggling with an ankle injury and will face a fitness test on Thursday.
On the positive side Springbok captain John Smit fully participated in training and is in line to play the Waratahs.
