Rugby: Piri Weepu suffers minor stroke

Articles Blog


Blues halfback Piri Weepu
is out of Investec Super Rugby for at least four weeks
after expert diagnosis this week determined he had recently suffered
a minor stroke. The 30-year-old had a scan on Monday after complaining of migraine-like
symptoms dating back to March 1. Medical staff have considered
the minor stroke to be a non-rugby related condition
that might not have been detected had he not been in an environment where he was being
so closely monitored. NZ Rugby and the Blues together,
with specialist medical services, have rallied around Weepu
and his family ensuring they are well supported.
