Cruden out for two months

WELLINGTON - Chiefs fly-half Aaron Cruden will be sidelined for up to two months with a broken thumb which could put him in doubt for the All Blacks' Tests against England in June.

The All Blacks fly-half and Chiefs co-captain fractured his left thumb during the Chiefs' 43-43 draw with the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Sunday and is expected to be out for six to eight weeks.

Cruden completed the game, landing a conversion after the hooter to level the scores, but an X-ray later confirmed a fracture.

The injury puts a cloud over the 29-Test veteran's availability for the three-Test home series against England in June. The first first Test is in Auckland on June 7.

Veteran fly-half Daniel Carter will miss that series after negotiating a six-month break from rugby to rest and recover from injuries.
