Cape Town - Springbok flyhalf Johan Goosen will play 40 minutes of their Currie Cup semi-final against the Sharks in Durban on Saturday, according to the Volksblad website.

Goosen, 21, had been sidelined since March due to a knee injury and an untimely appendectomy a few weeks ago further delayed his return to competitive action.

But he made a welcome return last week when he played the last 15 minutes of their 22-7 win over the Blue Bulls in Bloemfontein.

Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské said he was happy with the way the youngster played, but also praised incumbent flyhalf Elgar Watts for a decent performance.

Drotské said Watts would play the first half at Kings Park, with Goosen getting the second 40 minutes.

Kick-off is at 17:00 on Saturday.
