Cheetahs lose Lobberts for season

Cheetahs flanker Hilton Lobberts has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a serious shoulder injury against the Rebels.

According to Netwerk24, Lobberts broke a bone in his shoulder during the first half of the match in Melbourne, and is now set for an extended spell on the sidelines.

Willie Britz has been flown to Australia to replace him, with the Cheetahs set to face the Reds in Brisbane this Saturday.
