Montpellier - Toulouse's South African hooker Gary Botha broke his right leg in Friday's French Top 14 win over Montpellier and will be ruled out for up to four months.

The 30-year-old was stretchered off early in the first half of the champions' 45-25 victory after his leg buckled beneath him in a tackle.

"We are happy with the win but disappointed by the injury suffered by Botha who has broken his leg," said Toulouse forwards coach Yannick Bru.

Botha, who has played 12 times for the Springboks after making his debut against Australia in 2005, joined Toulouse from the Bulls this year having also spent two seasons at Harlequins in London.

    Botha was in very good form, it's a pity.
