Surgery rules Fruean out for Super Rugby season

Robbie Fruean could join Bath

The Crusaders will contest the rest of the Super Rugby season without Robbie Fruean after he fractured his arm and has undergone surgery.

Fruean fractured his arm playing against the Chiefs on Saturday and has had surgery today to insert a plate in his arm.

The timeframe for recovery from this type of injury is usually around 4 – 5 months which rules him out for the rest of the Super Rugby season.

Crusaders Head Coach Todd Blackadder said the entire team was feeling for Robbie and sending him their best wishes for a speedy recovery.

“We know that Robbie wanted to make this a great season so this is hugely disappointing for him,” said Blackadder.

“We know that he will continue to contribute to the team while he is on the road to recovery and we hope that he is able to make a full recovery before the season is over.”

The Crusaders have also lost winger Jone Macilai with a broken arm and Willi Heinz with a broken leg this season.
