South Africa’s talismanic flank Schalk Burger has been ruled out of the inaugural four-nation Rugby Championship.

Burger, capped 68 times, injured his knee at the end of February but there has been no progress in his rehabilitation according to Allister Coetzee, coach of his club Stormers.

“The position with Schalk is very frustrating and we are going to get a full assessment shortly from a physician on where it should be taken from here but you can take it as read that we won’t see Schalk play before the end of this season,” Coetzee told the website.

“Without even looking at the physician’s report, we are writing him off for the year.”
