Springbok flyhalf Johan Goosen will undergo knee surgery on Tuesday which will rule him out of action for the rest of the year.
The 20-year-old playmaker suffered the injury in a collision during the match against the All Blacks at Soccer City on Saturday, and after consulting specialists it has been decided that he requires surgery.
The young flyhalf who only recently returned from a shoulder injury and was hampered in the home Rugby Championship Tests against Australia and New Zealand with a bruised heel, limped off the field just before half-time with what has been confirmed as a Grade 3 medial tear.
This means that Goosen will not be going on the Springboks' year-end tour to Europe and his chances of being fit for the start of the Super Rugby season next year also appear quite slim as he may have to spend up to six months on the sideline.
