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.
