Season over for Lobberts

Date published: April 26 2016

The Cheetahs have been dealt a blow with the news that flanker Hilton Lobberts has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.

Netwerk24 reports that Lobberts broke a bone in his shoulder during the first-half of the Cheetahs' 36-14 defeat to the Rebels in Melbourne.

Willie Britz is on his way to Australia to replace Lobberts ahead of the Cheetahs' clash with the Reds in Brisbane on Saturday.
