Vainikolo ruled out for season

Posted by zohans0303 on January 6, 2009

Gloucester wing Lesley Vainikolo has been ruled out for the rest of the 2008/09 season after undergoing surgery on a ruptured Achilles tendon.

The 29-year-old England international suffered the injury during the first half of Gloucester’s 22-16 Guinness Premiership victory over Saracens on Saturday.

After attending Cromwell hospital in London yesterday evening, specialist James Calder recommended Vainikolo have an operation to correct the problem – meaning he faces at least seven months on the sidelines.

Gloucester head coach Dean Ryan said: “Les is a massive part of our squad, not just for his on-field contributions but because his personality is such an integral and vital part of the group.

“It will naturally leave a very significant gap and with the current injuries we have in the squad at the moment this could not have come at a worse time.

“Les has undergone surgery and when it is appropriate he will begin his rehabilitation process but we appreciate it will be a long road and he will have all the support he needs from everyone associated with the club.
