Aphiwe Dyantyi out for Six Weeks

Super Rugby 2018: Crusaders v Bulls Preview

Lions wing Aphiwe Dyantyi has been ruled out for six weeks with a torn pectoral muscle sustained in Saturday's 49-35 loss to the Jaguares.

It is unfortunate for Dyantyi who has caught the eye with his sparkling early-season form. He is now set to miss matches against the Stormers, Sharks, Rebels and Highlanders.

The wing had burst onto the Super Rugby scene by running 209 metres from 22 carries, beating 14 defenders in the process and scoring three tries in the Lions' opening two matches.
