No Heinrich for Cheetahs

According to an article in Volksblad, Heinrich Brüssow will not be in action for the cheetahs against the Sharks this weekend.

The out-of-favour Bok fetcher has a groin injury which will keep him out of the match – the news for Boks Johan Goosen and Coenie Oosthuizen is better, though. Both sustained knee injuries during the Test season, but have been cleared to play this weekend.

Coach Naka Drotske will be scratching his head when it comes to selecting the back row, though, with both Boom Prinsloo and Lappies Labuschagne unavailable in addition to Brüssow. Jean Cook and Philip van der Walt are expected to come back into the picture, along with new Bok Oupa Mohoje, but according to Jóhann Thormählen‘s article, Cook is unlikely to start, meaning a potential maiden cap for young Henco Venter at flank.

There’s also a possibility that Griffons prop Kevin Stevens could make an appearance, after Maks van Dyk and the other Griquas players have been withdrawn from the Cheetahs squad.

  • I foresee confussion:
    Henco Venter – Flank – Cheetahs
    Hanco Venter – Scrumhalf – Sharks

  • I am so glad that the Sharks don’t have Goosen in our squad,this guy is a drama queen of note,ever since he was bust for roids as a school boy he has been controversial .
    Yet he is touted as the golden boy and given chance after chance,I think most of his injuries happen in his head.You can have all the talent in the world but if you don’t have the confidence to exploit it it is useless.When you contrast Goosen with Lambie or Pollard there is no contest.Both of them took their opportunity and excelled,unlike this over hyped prima donna.

  • @R Hayward (Comment 2) : They will. I dont know why everyone is worried. We made it all this way without our 2 flyhalves and 2 locks. Three of them are back now and Steyn is rested. Relax guys, we’re winning this. In Durban or in Sydney

  • I am just looking forward to the Lambie/Goosen tussle. Will be great to see Pat on the field again. Just had about enough of everyone worshiping Pollard like he is the be all and end all of all fly-halves ever. Enough already! :x

    We have a wealth of riches at our disposal,having to find a starting place for Frans Steyn is probably our biggest worry.

  • @Another Nick (Comment 7) : Pollard delivered the goods in the junior W/C and when he was prematurely shoved in against the Scots club side.
    He has the complete game,and I stand to be shouted down here, but I see a lot of Lem in him.
    Playing with Fourie du Preez helped him on Saturday,and he doidn’t look that good when Houghaard arrived.

  • now does Bressler walk back into the team,or does Jake stay with his boy Oosthuizen who played so well in that win over the Blues,and its time to look at Esterhuizen in the 12 jersey he was massive in the Junior cup,and he is not going to hang around waiting for an opportunity

  • @Another Nick (Comment 12) : I agree with you, he is
    De La Ray riding in on a white horse to rescue the Volk from the shame of having to rely on Lambie .
    But rather him than Glas Goosen or Shit Steyn.

  • Just hope that the Sharks don’t grow complacent based on news of Cheetahs injuries. We need to come out firing in Bloem, build confidence from a good performance and ride that momentum into the Stormers game.

    Now we’ll see how HM’s OBP policy comes back to bite him on the ass.

  • @VinChainSaw (Comment 30) : We do have a problem at scrumhalf in SA. Behind Fourie, neither of the experienced scrumhalves in the pecking order (Pienaar and Hougaard) are world class, and behind them is a bunch of greenhorns. Kockett can’t be capped as a Bok – as per Morne’s explanation.
