Bulls suffer Labuschagne Super Rugby blow




The Bulls will start their Super Rugby season without loose forward Lappies Labuschagne as he has been ruled out of action for up to eight weeks.

Labuschagne sustained an ankle injury after meeting with team doctor Dr Herman Rossouw and a specialist it has been confirmed that he 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He also confirmed that prop Lizo Gqoboka had to be withdrawn from the Bulls team to play the Lions this weekend due to a groin injury and that he will not be traveling with the team to Polokwane this weekend.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 be fit for selection when the Super Rugby kicks off later this month, Dr Rossouw confirmed.
