Cape Town - The Springbok management feels Cheetahs flanker Heinrich Brüssow’s penalty count is too high.According to the SA Rugby Magazine’s website, this was the reason given to Brüssow after he was not included in the recent Springbok training squad.However, the 26-year-old is not completely out of the reckoning and said he will work as hard as he possibly can to add to his 20 Test caps - the last of which came against Australia at the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.“The Springbok management has told me what I need to work on, they said my penalty count stands against me,” said Brüssow.“I’ll just have to work harder to prove that I deserve to be in the Springbok squad. It’s frustrating sometimes because penalties will happen as referees are so strict at the breakdowns. But I’ll do whatever it takes to earn my spot. I’m even working hard on becoming bigger (in size).”The rugbystats.com.au website reveals that Brüssow conceded seven penalties in six Super Rugby appearances this season, with three of those coming in the Cheetahs' recent derby win over the Stormers in Bloemfontein.HAVE YOUR SAY: Is penalties conceded the main reason for Heinrich Brüssow's omission from the Springbok squad? Or does coach Heyneke Meyer simply prefer bigger players? Send your thoughts to Sport24.
