Brumbies centre played with broken hand

Brumbies centre Matt Carraro played 75 minutes with a broken hand when the Canberra side went down at home to the Bulls 7-19 on Saturday.

According to Reuters, Carraro’s injury was only discovered at a recovery session on Sunday.

“He did it very early in the game … in the first 10 minutes,” said Brumbies coach Laurie Fisher.

“He has done it before so he’s probably use to the feeling.”

It is not certain how long he will be out of action.

Fisher also conceded that the Brumbies had been poor against the Bulls.

“We were our own worst enemy last night … we have to learn very quickly from this,” he said.

The Brumbies face the Stormers again at home on Friday before heading for South Africa for a three week tour. Fisher is not intimidated by this.

“The home and away advantage, I don’t think it exists anymore,” he said.

“We have got to win three in South Africa and I think the home and away advantage of previous years is just not as much of an issue anymore.”
