The Crusaders have suffered a blow following their 14-19 Super Rugby victory over the Stormers at Newlands as Johnny McNicholl has been ruled out for the season.

McNicholl was stretchered from the field in the Crusaders victory over the Stormers and has been diagnosed with a broken ankle.

According to Crusaders coach the injury is expected to be out of Super Rugby for four to five months.

NewstalkZB have reported that Telusa Veainu will join the Crusaders squad as injury cover while prop Owen Franks who also left the field against the Stormers is expected to miss the Sharks match with a rib injury.

Crusaders fullback Israel Dagg missed their match against the Southern Kings and was a late withdrawal from the team that played the Stormers but he is hopeful that he will recover from a hamstring injury and be able to face the Sharks.
