Shoulder injury ends Kaino’s season

Blues lose forward Jerome Kaino has been ruled out of rugby for six months after a shoulder injury sustained against the Chiefs in week two of Super Rugby has turned out to be more serious than initially feared.

Apparently a blow to the shoulder during that match dislodged a bone fragment and the powerful back rower will need to go under the knife on Wednesday to repair the damage.

Apart from ruling him out of contention for the rest of the Blues’ Super Rugby campaign, the injury will also see him miss out on the All Blacks three-test series against Ireland in June, but there’s a chance he may recover in time to challenge for a place in the All Black squad for the inaugural Rugby Championship, which kicks off on completion of the regional competition.
