Cory Jane suffers serious knee injury
20:35 AEST Fri Feb 1 2013

All Blacks and Hurricanes winger Cory Jane faces a long stint on the rugby sidelines after suffering a serious knee injury.

Jane faces the prospect of missing the entire 2013 Super Rugby season after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee at pre-season training in Paraparaumu on Thursday.

A Hurricanes statement said the injury will require surgery.

Mark Hammett felt for the 29-year-old, who has established himself as one of the best wingers in the world in recent years.

"It is devastating for Cory to have suffered this serious injury when he was looking so strong for this season following such a successful 2012," Hammett said.

It is unclear when or if Jane will be fit enough in time to add to his 41 Test caps.
