Goosen suffers knee injury

6:22 am on 19 March 2013

The Springbok first five Johan Goosen faces another lengthy spell on the sidelines after injuring his knee during a Cheetahs training session in Sydney yesterday.

Goosen was practising his kicking when he slipped and fell, hurting his knee in what was later diagnosed as a serious cruciate ligament tear, meaning at least a six-month spell on the sidelines.

He could miss the Rugby Championship.
