Bulls prop Steenkamp out 6 weeks with broken arm

Bulls and Springboks prop Gurthro Steenkamp has broken his right arm again, and this time he will be sidelined for up to six weeks.
Steenkamp broke the forearm during the Bulls' loss to the archrival Stormers in the Super 15 on Saturday. He'd sprained his ankle earlier in the match but kept playing until he was replaced around the hour mark at Loftus Versfeld.
X-rays on Tuesday confirmed the break, and Bulls doctor Org Strauss said he will be sidelined for five to six weeks.
Steenkamp hurt the same arm he broke last October, which forced him to miss South Africa's November tour of Europe. Despite that, he was still named South Africa rugby player of 2010.
