The National - News - Sport - - FOOTBALL -

South Africa cap­tain War­ren White­ley faces up to two months on the side­lines with a pelvis in­jury, rul­ing him out of the rest of the Su­per Rugby sea­son and pos­si­bly the open­ing matches of the Rugby Cham­pi­onship, his team said. White­ley was ap­pointed Spring­bok cap­tain for the three-Test tour by France this month and looked an in­spired choice as South Africa won the first two Tests in con­vinc­ing fash­ion. How­ever, he was hurt dur­ing line-out prac­tice in the build-up to the third Test and had to pull out of the team on the eve of last Satur­day’s vic­tory in Jo­han­nes­burg.
