Cheetahs loose forward Heinrich Brüssow has hit yet another obstacle in his quest to prove his credentials to Bok coach Heyneke Meyer.
The pint-sized flanker, who flourished as an international open-sider of renown under Peter de Villiers, has been unable to crack so much as a wider training group under Meyer, with the coach on record as concerned about Brüssow’s propensity for conceding penalties, whereas in reality, we all know that his size (or lack thereof) is the real issue.
Brüssow picked up a shoulder injury in last weekend’s Currie Cup game against Griquas – incidentally the Cheetahs’ first win in five outings – and will await the result of a scan today with some trepidation. Should the injury only affect the AC joint, then he might be fit to face the Sharks this weekend in another must-win outing for his side.
Should the worst be confirmed, though and the rotator cuff also be damaged, Brüssow could find his 2012 prematurely curtailed, like so many other Cheetahs loose forwards this season.Tweet
