Fouche out for six months
Vodacom Bulls flyhalf Louis Fouché injured his knee ligaments and will be out of rugby for at least six months. He picked up the injury in the Vodacom Bulls win over the Kings in Pretoria at the weekend.
According to Vodacom Bulls team doctor, Org Strauss, an operation is needed after Fouché ruptured his ACL. He will undergo surgery next week.
Fouché will join Pierre Spies (bicep) and Arno Botha (knee) for a six month stint on the side line.
Cornell Hess (knee) is five months away from action, but Paul Willemse (knee) could return to the training field in a week following successful rehab after his operation.
Lionel Mapoe (shoulder) will return in three months.
Wiaan Liebenberg (AC joint, one week), Hencus van Wyk (ankle, Wednesday) and Ruan Steenkamp (ankle, one week) will all return in the next couple of days.
