    Long way back for rugby's Burger

    Springbok loose forward Schalk Burger has been cleared to return to rugby training after a year of injury and illness saw him spend six weeks in hospital and another eight weeks indoors after contracting a potentially serious infection.

    Burger's South African team Western Province said Thursday he can plan a return to field training, having already begun his comeback in the gym.

    The 30-year-old Burger, capped 68 times for South Africa, hasn't played since injuring his knee in the opening game of the 2012 Super Rugby season.

    He then had a calf problem and needed surgery on a cyst on his spine, and contracted bacterial meningitis in the hospital.

    Burger didn't commit to a date for a comeback match but said "the good news is that I can start training properly."
