‘Miracle’ saves Sharks lock Du Toit’s season

The Sharks and Springboks have been given a massive boost as Pieter-Steph du Toit has undergone an operation and could be back for the end of the Super Rugby season.

The Sharks second rower injured his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the 36th minute of the Sharks 10-27 victory over the Cheetahs on Saturday.

Early expectations were that Du Toit would miss the rest of the season which meant an end to his Super Rugby season and no Rugby World Cup for the Sharks lock.

However Du Toit has revealed on his Twitter account that he has undergone surgery and that the doctor says provided his rehab goes well he could be back in three months.

“A MIRACLE just happened. Just got home after surgery, everything went well, “said Du Toit in his Twitter feed.

“Doc said I will be able to play in 3 months, if rehabs goes well.”

While Du Toit has a chance of playing in the business end of the Super Rugby it would seem that if all goes well he could make the world cup with the Springboks.
