End of Goosen’s season

Coach Heyneke Meyer might rue his decision to rush young Cheetahs flyhalf Johan Goosen into the Springbok fold, following news that Goosen has picked up a Grade 3 medial tear in his knee, and could be out for a lengthy amount of time.

Goosen, who sustained a shoulder injury during Super Rugby and was ruled out for 4 months, played 40 minutes of rugby before being called up to the Springbok squad to travel to Australia and New Zealand. He made his debut from the bench on this tour and subsequently selected to start the match against Australia at Loftus.

He picked up another injury during this match which prevented him from taking the kicks at goal, where Ruan Pienaar took over, but was cleared to start the match against the All Blacks a week later, in which he lasted only 30 odd minutes.

Goosen will hear today whether he requires surgery, which will rule him out of rugby for up to 6 months, or if surgery is not necessary, the young flyhalf will be out for 3 months, which would see him miss the End of Year Tour, but be back in time for the start of the 2013 Super Rugby campaign.
