PIC: Graphic Image Of Chris Cloete’s Arm Surgery Is Not For The Faint Of Heart


Munster managed to get back to winning ways on Friday night after a disappointing run out against Cardiff Blues last week.

The Irish province secured an important 21-10 win over Conference A leaders Glasgow Warriors, to move them one step closer to a play-off position come the end of the regular season.

The win however, looks to have come at a huge cost for the Irish side. Flanker Chris Cloete went off early in the second-half with a serious looking arm injury. He was rushed straight to hospital, with the South African confirming the extend of the damage by posting a graphic image of him getting surgery.

The South African looks to have indeed broken his arm, potentially ruling him out for the rest of the season. It’s a huge blow for Munster as we approach the business end of the PRO14 and Champions Cup.

Cloete has been nothing short of a revelation since arriving before Christmas, and he will indeed be sorely missed. Munster can however, take solace in the fact that Ireland international Tommy O’Donnell has finally returned to full fitness.
