INJURED BLUES lock Anthony Boric may need to go under the knife to fix his damaged neck.
He has a bulging disc and has been told to rest until Super Rugby takes a break towards the end of May.
Medical staff will then re-evaluate his injury and if he is still struggling, Boric will have surgery which would take him out of the rest of the rugby season.
