Cape Town - His Rugby Championship season may be over, but injured Springbok wing Ruan Combrinck had good news on Monday. 

Combrinck was taken off 32 minutes into Saturday's 26-24 loss to Argentina in Salta and it was later revealed that he had broken his fibula while looking to stop Pumas flank Juan Manuel Leguizamon. 

The prognosis wasn't good, and he was immediately ruled out of the remainder of the tournament. 

But there was some good news from the Lions speedster on Monday as he took to Twitter to confirm that he would not be needing an operation. 

He will, though, be out for between 4-6 weeks. 

Combrinck has earned four caps for the Boks since making his debut against Ireland in Johannesburg on June 18, scoring two tries.
