Gary Botha: Suffered broken leg against Montpellier on Friday
Toulouse's Gary Botha will be out of action for up to four months after breaking his right leg in Friday's Top 14 win over Montpellier.
The 30-year-old South African hooker was stretchered off early in the first half of the French champions' 45-25 victory after his leg buckled beneath him in a tackle.
"We are happy with the win but disappointed by the injury suffered by Botha who has broken his leg," said Toulouse coach Yannick Bru.
Botha, who has played 12 times for the Springboks after making his debut against Australia in 2005, joined Toulouse from the Bulls in the summer having also spent two seasons at Harlequins.
