In what must be the biggest casualty of the Rugby World Cup 2011 thus far, Dan Carter has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament. The All Black talisman was today ruled out due to a severe groin injury that was described as a “freak” injury with Carter not having any previous groin related injuries or discomfort.

The 29-year-old fly-half sustained a “torn adductor longus tendon” during kicking practice on Saturday and was immediately withdrawn from the All Blacks team to play Canada later on Sunday.
“The scan confirmed our worst fears, that the tendon has torn, which means he is out of the tournament,” said All Blacks doctor Deb Robinson. “He will see a specialist early next week to determine the next course of treatment for him, with surgery a possibility.”

Aaron Cruden will be called up as cover.

Good luck Dan, we wish you a speedy recovery.
