Cape Town - Western Province No 8 Duane Vermeulen has confirmed he won't be available for selection for the remainder of the 2011 season.

Vermeulen, who suffered a knee injury during the Stormers' Super Rugby campaign in June, had been expected to be fit for Currie Cup action in Week 8, but on Monday ruled himself out of contention on his Twitter page, writing: Hey guys I won't be playing this year so will only be back on the field for the super rugby season.
