Cape Town - Springbok flyhalf Johan Goosen's season appears to be over following confirmation he will undergo knee surgery on Tuesday.

Goosen injured his knee during the Boks' 32-16 Rugby Championship loss to the All Blacks in Soweto last Saturday.

The 20-year-old Cheetahs star only recently returned from a shoulder injury and also entered the game against New Zealand with bruised heel.

Goosen hobbled from the field at the FNB Stadium and was replaced by Elton Jantjies in the first half.

Goosen has a Grade 3 medial tear and will be operated on at 12:00 according to the SA Rugby magazine Facebook page. He will thus also miss the rest of the Free State Cheetahs' Absa Currie Cup season.

The Boks take on Ireland in Dublin on November 10, followed by Tests against Scotland (November 17 in Edinburgh) and England (November 24 in London).
