Cane Cory crocked

Hurricanes and All Blacks winger Corey Jane’s Super Rugby season is over.

Jane hurt his knee in an open training session and will undergo surgery.

‘It is devastating for Cory to have suffered this serious injury when he was looking so strong for this season following such a successful 2012. We know that CJ is focussed and dedicated to his rehabilitation. So he will be committed to working hard in his recovery to come back better and stronger,’ said Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett.

‘This is not the news we wanted to hear at the start of the season and we acknowledge the loss of a world-class player. However, we have a strong squad for 2013 and CJ’s misfortune means it’s an opportunity for another player to step up.’

Jane, the current All Blacks right wing, won’t be considered for the July internationals.
