Alberto Contador soldiers on in the Giro

18 May 2015 6:19 PM
Physiologist/physical trainer Dr Zac van Heerden fills us in on the sporting world's significant injuries for the week.

As niggling injuries plague some of the bigger Super Rugby teams, Dr van Heerden lamented the impact that a lengthy season in the Southern Hemisphere can have - especially in a World Cup year! By comparison the European rugby leagues are pretty much tied up.

In English football, Hull, Newcastle and Sunderland are fighting it out in the relegation zone - all three with injury worries. Meanwhile in Spain, Real and Atletico went to war - the one without a captain, the other without a key striker.

And in cycling - Alberto Contador continues to fight the pain from injuries sustained in the Giro d' Italia...
