Captain Ardie Savea Suffers MCL Injury

Tue 13th Apr

Hurricanes captain Ardie Savea is set to miss the remainder of Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa after sustaining an injury to his left knee in Sunday's golden point loss to the Crusaders. 

Scan results have confirmed today that Savea has injured his Medial Collateral Ligament and will be sidelined for around 6-8 weeks. That timeframe will see him miss not only the remainder of the Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa campaign, but likely also the majority of the trans-Tasman competition which will follow.

The injury was picked up early in the second half during the lead up to Wes Goosen's try, but the inspirational skipper soldiered on for a further 20 minutes before being replaced by Du'Plessis Kirifi.

In a video message, Savea said: "Like in life you get knocked down but you just gotta keep moving forward. Thanks for all the love and the messages. Keep supporting our Hurricanes, fam, and I’ll be back. Peace out.”
