Knee injury ends season for Bordeaux wing
INJURY UPDATE: Bordeaux-Begles wing Geoffrey Cros has been ruled out for the remainder of the season. following a serious knee injury.
The 23-year-old was stretchered off during the match against Castres last Friday, after trying to avoid a tackle from Fijian wing Filipo Nakosi, and underwent further tests on his right knee.
“The verdict delivered on Monday confirmed the fear of a serious knee injury that will keep him [Cros] away from the pitch for many months,” Bordeaux wrote on their website.
Cros, who was described as an “atomic bomb” by club coach Christophe Urios after scoring a hat-trick of tries earlier in the season against Agen, was matter-of-fact about the injury.
“That’s it, the verdict is in. Meniscus damaged, torn anterior cruciate ligament as well as the internal one. A big thank you for all your messages of support,” he wrote on his Instagram account.
Cros, who missed 11 months in 2018 because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, is likely to be out of action for nine to 12 months.
Bordeaux are considering the option of taking on a medical joker.
