Highly-rated Sharks second-row Pieter-Steph du Toit has been ruled out for the rest of the season thanks to an ACL injury.

The 21-year-old Springbok, hailed as one of South African rugby's hottest prospects, sustained the damage during training.

And the Sharks confirmed on Friday du Toit underwent a scan on the knock, revealing its true severity.

The second-row had been named to start Saturday's clash with the Reds in Durban, and will be replaced by Stephan Lewies.
