Dane Coles

All Blacks hooker Dane Coles has been ruled out for up to six months due to a serious knee injury sustained in the All Blacks’ 38-18 win over France on Saturday. 
The 30-year-old Hurricanes yster, who has 56 caps for the All Blacks, scored his team’s first try at the Stade de France but was replaced by Codie Taylor shortly after suffering a knee injury. 
The All Blacks tweeted: “Dane Coles is to return home after rupturing his ACL... head coach Steve Hansen says he will require an operation with likely four to six month recovery.”
