Reconstructive surgery puts Cruden out for season

Aaron Cruden will miss six months of rugby after scans this afternoon revealed that the All Black will require surgery.


Cruden ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during Friday’s win over the Crusaders.

Cruden will see a specialist on Wednesday to organise reconstruction surgery.

The expected timeframe for Cruden’s return will be six months.

This news is not only a major blow for the Chiefs in Super Rugby, but Cruden is now all but confirmed to miss the Rugby World Cup later this year.

Andrew Horrell and Damian McKenzie will now takeover the first five role for the Chiefs.

Back at HQ for training with Waikato Powerchair Football. Back in the studio! Tune into #MikePulmanRadio at 2pm - Don't disappoint me now... Afternoon naps. Lets go! (because I'm the moron that hasn't ever watched this show) Back at the stadium to cover the final regular season game of 2k17. This screenshot from tonight's DPA Forum really sums up how much the NZ Government cares about disabled people. They don't care... all they want to do is read from their papers and tout stats. At least LOOK at the person asking you questions. Listen to @freefm89 at 2.00pm NZST for #MikePulmanRadio or stream live on TuneIn Radio
