Dennis fights on

Aap

SYDNEY - The NSW Waratahs expect skipper Dave Dennis to still have an important role in their quest for a maiden Super Rugby title despite his shattering season-ending injury.

It was confirmed on Monday that Dennis would be out for the remainder of the year after sustaining anterior cruciate knee ligament damage in the 39-6 home win over the Brumbies on Saturday.

He will this week undergo a third knee reconstruction.

"It's pretty shattering and devastating, but I suppose life goes on," Waratahs five-eighth Bernard Foley said on Monday.

"It's going to be a tough challenge without him, but we're looking forward to it."

Utility back Jono Lance said there was a solemn mood post-game in the Waratahs dressing room following Dennis's injury.

However, he revealed Dennis had messaged his teammates urging them not to fret over his bad fortune.

"It (said) 'just that the job's not over and don't worry about me, that's footy'," Lance said.

Dennis will still be heavily involved with the Waratahs, who have already secured top spot in the Australian conference with two rounds remaining.
