Springbok centre ruled out for three months

Clermont’s South African and former Springbok centre Marius Joubert is to undergo an operation on a nagging groin injury and will be out for three months, the French Top14 side announced Friday.

Joubert, 30, underwent a first operation in May but has had a recurrence of groin-related problems.

Joubert has previously played for the Free State Cheetahs and Western Province in the Currie Cup and the Stormers and the Central Cheetahs in the Super 14.

Joubert started his career at the Boland Cavaliers where he played from 1999 to 2001 when he joined Western Province from 2002 – 2006.
He made his debut for South Africa against New Zealand in 2001.
He was a member of the 2004 Springbok squad that won the TriNations.
In the Boks’ home match at Ellis Park in Johannesburg against the All Blacks, he became only the second Springboks in history (after Ray Mordt in 1981) to score a hat-trick of tries against the All Blacks.
