ALL BLACKS flanker Jerome Kaino will miss the remainder of Super Rugby as he requires surgery on his bung shoulder.
Kaino, who suffered the injury during the 29-14 loss to the Chiefs in round two, will go under the knife on Wednesday after consulting with a specialist last week and is expected to be sidelined for six months.
Scans revealed that a piece of bone had been knocked off the shoulder joint.
“I'm gutted,” says Kaino.
“I really didn't think this was going to take me out of the whole Blues season.”
The Blues, who beat the Bulls 29-23 last weekend, play the Stormers in Cape Town.« Back to Articles
