Cape Town - The Cheetahs have been dealt a severe blow with the news that loose forward Boom Prinsloo’s season is over.
Prinsloo injured his hamstring in last weekend’s loss to the Bulls in Pretoria, which saw him undergo an operation on Tuesday.
According to Netwerk24, Prinsloo’s hamstring tore completely off his bone and the operation was done to anchor" the muscle.
The 27-year-old says he is his currently enduring a lot of pain.
“I’m wearing a brace to keep the hamstring in place and will be bed-ridden for the next six weeks.”
The Cheetahs have a bye this weekend, with their next Super Rugby assignment at home against the Sunwolves on April 15.
