VIDEO: Player suffers horrific season-ending injury

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 12:30

WATCH as Aidan Ross, a 22-year-old Chiefs prop, was ruled out for the season - after suffering a serious ankle injury.

The incident happened in their Super Rugby Round Nine encounter with the Hurricanes in Wellington last Friday.

His ankle was crushed under the weight of teammate Angus Ta’avao.

He becomes the sixth Chiefs man to be ruled out for the season, and the sixth prop forward they have lost since the start of the 2018 campaign. Like Ross, fellow prop Moli was also ruled out for the season while Nepo Laulala, Kane Hames, Mitchell Graham, and Sefo Kautai are still working their way back to full fitness. Sam Pratley has been called into the squad as cover.

On Head Injury Watch this week, Dick Hardwick was knocked out cold in head-on-head collision:
