More woe for Spencer
14 April 2005 12:03pm
Carlos Spencer's troubled season shows no sign of improving after it was confirmed the All Blacks fly-half has fractured his cheekbone and will require surgery.
The New Zealand international, who will be hoping to face the British & Irish Lions this summer, is expected to have an operation on Saturday to plate and repair the damage.
Spencer has endured a torrid season so far after being relegated to the bench in favour of the up-and-coming Tasesa Lavea.
Spencer, who has played 96 games for the Blues, suffered a similar facial injury last year when his jaw was broken while playing against the Chiefs.
He recovered in time for the All Blacks early season Tests and the Tri-Nations series.
