Naka backs Brussouw

Heinrich Brussouw will be back in Super Rugby this weekend.

Brussouw, the best specialist fetcher in South Africa, has been out injured for the last four months, but Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske told Rugby 365′s Jan de Koning that the flanker would play against the Highlanders.

Drotske said they had earmarked between 30 and 40 minutes for the flanker who excelled for the Boks under Peter de Villiers but was not considered good enough in Bok coach Heyneke Meyer’s first year.

In other South African Super Rugby news, Bulls hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle has been cleared of any wrong doing after being cited. Ralepelle will play against the Blues in Auckland.
