Rugby: Springbok centre De Allende out for months

CAPE TOWN (REUTERS) - South Africa centre Damian de Allende has been ruled out for the next three months after sustaining a serious ankle injury in the Super Rugby 37-24 win against the Bulls, the Stormers confirmed on Tuesday.

A scan confirmed a lengthy absence for the 25-year-old, who has won 22 caps for the Springboks and is expected to be back before the three-test series at home against France in June.
