The Springbok prop Coenie Oosthuizen has been ruled out of rugby for a couple of months.

Oosthuizen, who impressed in his test debut against England in Durban last weekend, has a mildly bulging disc in his neck.

The Springbok team doctor Craig Roberts says the 23-year-old needs treatment, rest and rehabilitation and Oosthuizen could be out for between two and three months.
