Cape Town - Bulls loose forward Lappies Labuschagne has been ruled out of Super Rugby action for eight weeks due to an ankle injury, the Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd confirmed on Thursday.

Labuschagne and Bulls team doctor Dr Herman Rossouw met with specialists on Thursday where it was confirmed that the stalwart flanker has to undergo surgery.

“After weighing up all the facts and opinions of various specialists, we came to this decision that Lappies will be operated on Monday," Dr Rossouw said.

He also confirmed that prop Lizo Gqoboka had to be withdrawn from the Bulls team to play the Lions this weekend due to a groin injury and that he will not be traveling with the team to Polokwane this weekend.

“Lizo had some discomfort and we decided that it will be best to withdraw him from the weekend's match.”

He will however be fit for selection when the Super Rugby kicks off later this month.
