Bloemfontein - Springbok Heinrich Brüssow will be out of rugby for the remainder of the Super 14 season and perhaps the rest of the year after being injured in the Cheetahs clash against the Hurricanes.

Brüssow's injury took place in what was virtually the final movement of the match when Brüssow tore a cruciate knee ligament while trying to make a tackle.

Cheetahs captain Juan Smith was visibly shaken when he was seen screaming for medical assistance after the final whistle had been blown.

The Cheetahs celebrations were somewhat subdued when teammate Brüssow was put on a stretcher and carried off the field.

Brussow’s injury was the only downside to a brilliant Cheetahs’ 28-12 victory over the Hurricanes.
