Chiefs: Cruden’s ACL surgery was a success

Hamilton based Super Rugby franchise the Chiefs have released a statement confirming that All Blacks first-five Aaron Cruden has undergone surgery.

Cruden was ruled out for the Super Rugby season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury on his left knee and is in a race to be fit for the world cup.

Cruden sustained the injury playing in the Chiefs 9-26 victory over the Crusaders in Christchurch last month.

The Chiefs say that,”Cruden’s knee reconstruction surgery late this afternoon was successful and he is expected to make full recovery.”

“He will commence his rehabilitation with the Chiefs in two weeks,” said the Chiefs in a brief statement.

The expected return to play time for this sort of surgery is six months.
