Stormers lose Pieter-Steph du Toit and Eben Etzebeth

Stormers coach Robbie Fleck confirmed that Springbok lock Pieter-Steph du Toit failed his fitness test and will not be available for the derby against the Lions on Saturday. Du Toit is suffering from heat exhaustion and a bout of flu after the team’s shock defeat against the Sunwolves in Hong Kong. Fleck admits that he has been tempted in playing Springbok lock Eben Etzebeth, who has been out injured since the end of last year but has resisted because he hasn’t yet been given the green light by the Stormers medical staff.
