He suffered a serious pectoral injury in a weights session.

Venter, 26, joined the Top 14 side in December from the Cheetahs as injury cover for Yohan Beheregaray and made just three appearances.

“A victim of a total tear of the right pectoral muscle during a weights exercise, he has been sidelined by Clermont’s medical staff and orthopaedic surgeons so as to find the best way to recover,” the club said in a statement.

“Reinach will leave the Auvergne in the coming days,” they added.

Clermont host Brive this Saturday after losing last weekend’s European Champions Cup quarterfinal to Toulouse.

They are fourth in the table, four points behind La Rochelle in the second and final automatic play off spot.
