Scan confirms broken arm for Flynn

Crusaders hooker Corey Flynn is likely to miss the rest of the Rebel Sport Super 14 season after re-breaking his left arm in the match against the Brumbies in Canberra on Saturday night.

A CT scan today revealed a complete fracture of the radius – the same one he broke while playing for the All Blacks on their end-of-year tour of the United Kingdom.

Flynn will now discuss his options with an orthopaedic surgeon.

Flynn’s place will be taken by Jason Macdonald, with wider training group hooker Daniel Perrin called into the squad as cover.

Halfback Andy Ellis, who also left the field early on Saturday night with an injury, will have his ankle sprain reviewed this week as to his availability for Friday night’s match against the Hurricanes at AMI Stadium.

Tyson Keats has been brought into the squad as halfback cover. Kahn Fotuali’i will wear the No9 jersey if Ellis is ruled out.

The availability of flanker Richie McCaw (concussion) and Brad Thorn (heel) will also be reviewed this week.

Fullback Leon MacDonald (shoulder) will definitely not be available.

Crusaders head coach Todd Blackadder said the injuries were tough on the individuals concerned but added that he was confident their replacements would make the necessary step up.

“It’s really unfortunate, especially for Corey who has had some terrible luck with both of his arms,” Blackadder said.

“However, we’ll still put a very competitive team on the field for the Hurricanes game. We learned some key things in the loss to the Brumbies and the players are very keen to put them into practice on Friday night.”

The Crusaders team to play the Hurricanes will be announced on Wednesday morning
