Brussow heads for Japan

Heinrich Brussow will play in Japan after failing to make an impression on Bok coach Heyneke Meyer.

The Volksblad newspaper reported that Brussow will take up a club career in Japan after the Cheetahs complete their Super Rugby commitments. The nature of his Japanese club contract is such that he is not available for national selection, as it is with all the South African players in Japan.

He will continue to play Super Rugby for the Cheetahs.

Meyer has not rated Brussow since taking charge and the player has been described as a penalty liability and not a good enough all-round player.

It is something many, myself included, disagree with in every regard.

He is a huge loss to the national squad.
