Ioane misses out

Aap
Wednesday, April 16, 2014

WELLINGTON - Explosive loose forward TJ Ioane hasn't recovered from injury in time to be named in the Highlanders' squad for a two-game Super Rugby tour of South Africa.

A calf strain sidelined Ioane from the Highlanders' two home wins over the Rebels and Bulls and he wasn't deemed ready for the tour, where they will face the competition-leading Sharks and the Stormers.

Also missing from the 27-strong squad is veteran lock Brad Thorn, who suffered a season-ending bicep injury against the Bulls on Friday.

Lock Tom Franklin, prop Matais Diaz, flyhalf Willie Ripia, centre Winston Stanley and halfback Frae Wilson have also missed selection.
