Laulala and Bird suffer serious injuries during Chiefs training

Two high profile Chiefs players have succumbed to injury during pre season training.

Nepo Laulala will be out of rugby for 12 months following a substantial knee injury at training.

Laulala tore three ligaments in his right knee, the ACL, PCL, and MCL during a team training on Friday last week. The prop will undergo reconstructive surgery with an expected recovery time of 12-months.

The news gets even worse for the Chiefs.

Chiefs lock and fellow big signing Dominic Bird has been ruled out for the first 10 weeks of the season after fracturing his right foot.

More to come.
