Good news on Goosen

Cape Town - Springbok flyhalf Johan Goosen's latest injury setback may not keep him sidelined for long.

The injury-prone Cheetahs pivot lasted only four minutes when he came on as a second half substitute against Wales in Durban last weekend.

He picked up a knee injury which seemed quite serious at the time.

However, Bok team doctor Craig Roberts told the Rugby365 website that Goosen may even be available to face Wales in the return Test in Nelspruit this coming Saturday.

Roberts said Goosen underwent scans on Monday and the results were "quite good".

Roberts continued by saying that Goosen's injury has "progressed quite nicely" and that a decision on his availability will be made later in the week.

Other minor injury worries were fullback Willie le Roux and lock Bakkies Botha.

Le Roux, who was named man-of-the-match, took a knock to the outside of his thigh, while Botha left the field at half-time because the high intensity level of the game resulted in his Achilles and calf flaring up a bit.

However, Roberts confirmed that both are likely to play in the Nelspruit Test.
