Rugby: Cruden likely to miss out on RWC

Maori representation
in the ABs 2015 RWC campaign has taken a beating today. Ngati Raukawa’s Aaron Cruden
has been ruled out of rugby for six months. Not exactly news the 26-year-old
first five wanted to hear as he looked to cement his spot
in the RWC later this year. The Chiefs were training today
in Hamilton, missing one key face. Cruden’s scans reveal he’s suspected to have ruptured
his anterior cruciate ligament here in the 26-9 win
over the Crusaders on Friday Night. Coach Dave Rennie is staying coy on who he will be picking
as Cruden’s replacement, and on whether or not rising
Ngai Tahu star Damian McKenzie will take the 10 jersey.
