Johannesburg - Springbok prop Coenie Oosthuizen has been ruled out of the November tour to Ireland, Scotland and Wales after suffering a back injury in the Currie Cup loss to Western Province on the weekend.

“It is a back injury, he’s hurt the disc in his back,” Morris said. “We will still get him a specialist opinion but the initial diagnosis is that he should sit out for between 8-12 weeks and therefore would miss the end of year tour with the Springboks.”

Another Cheetah Springbok, Johan Goosen, was ruled out last week with a medial knee ligament injury, and will also miss the end of year tour.
