DHL Stormers loose forward Nizaam Carr will fly home to Cape Town from Perth due to a shoulder injury he picked up in the 57-31 victory against the Rebels in Melbourne.

Carr left the field at AAMI Park in the 36th minute on Saturday, and will see a specialist in Cape Town after further assessment by the DHL Stormers medical staff ruled him out of the clash with the Force this weekend.

There will be no replacement flown out to Perth as DHL Stormers Head Coach Robbie Fleck is happy with the cover he has at his disposal.

“We brought 16 forwards with us on tour initially, so we feel we have enough cover and will not need an extra player to fly out for this match.

“Our focus is on the Force this weekend, and the players are determined to build on our performance against the Rebels to make it two wins from our two games in Australia,” he said.

Tevin Campbell was born in Dallas, Texas on November 12, 1976. At the age of 12, he became one of the youngest solo artists to ever be signed to a major record label. Quincy Jones took a special interest in Tevin’s talent and he appeared on Jones’ LP Back on the Block and was featured on “Tomorrow (A Better You, Better Me),” which hit number one on the R&B charts in June 1990. Later that year, he appeared in Prince’s Graffiti Bridge film singing “Round and Round,” which Prince wrote for him and which became a gold single. Next, in the summer of 1991, he appeared on the soundtrack to Boyz in the Hood singing “Just Ask Me To,” a Top Ten R&B hit. All of this set the stage for his debut album, 1991’s T.E.V.I.N., which went platinum and spawned two R&B chart-toppers, “Tell Me What You Want Me to Do” and “Alone with You,” as well as the R&B Top Five hit “Goodbye.” I’m Ready, released two years later, did even better, going double platinum and featuring three R&B chart hits — the number one “Can We Talk,” “I’m Ready,” which went Top Five, and “Always in My Heart,” which reached the Top Ten. Campbell’s compilation album “The Best of Campbell” was a huge international success, reaching multi-platinum status in Africa, Japan and the UK. Campbell has worked with some of the industry’s top writers and producers including Prince, Babyface, Al B. Sure, Narada Michael Walden, Wyclef and Sean “Diddy” Combs.

This from moneyweb.co.za:

JOHANNESBURG – In the six months after government issued proposed caps to charges on loans, unsecured credit ballooned by almost 30%, suggesting that lenders were maximising prevailing high interest rates before lower legal limits rained on their parade.

Unsecured lenders embarked on a lending spree in the months before caps to interest rates and fees came into effect, data from the National Credit Regulator’s (NCR) Consumer Credit Market Reports (CCMR) reveal.

From levels above R21 billion for the quarter to December 2013, unsecured credit growth fell during 2014 and the beginning of 2015, before spiking upwards for the six months to December 2015 – immediately after the Department of Trade and Industry (dti) first published the draft recommendations on caps to rates and fees towards the end of June 2015.
