Blood clots rule out Ita for the season

By johnboy 15 February 2013 2

Rugby Heaven have the unpleasant news that the Brumbies big unit Ita Vaea is out for the season for treatment of his blood clots:

The Brumbies first discovered a clot in Vaea’s calf in October and he was immediately sent for more tests when his foot turned white at training. At some point Vaea had a mini heart attack, which compromised the heart muscle. It affected his circulation and bits of the clot were pumped around his body.

Here’s hoping he responds to treatment.

On reading the headline I assumed this would be a story about Ita Buttrose, and wondered what relationship it could have to Canberra. 🙂
