    Lachie Turner ruled out of Super Rugby season

    The Waratahs have confirmed strike weapon Lachie Turner will likely miss the entire Super Rugby season after tearing his hamstring off the bone.

    Turner needs surgery on Wednesday to reattach the tendon and will miss at least six months of action, meaning, best case, he could be back if the Waratahs make it to the finals in August.

    He is definitely out of Australia's mid-year Tests against Scotland and Wales and, lacking match practice, would be almost no chance for the August-October Rugby Championship.....

    Chuck Norris has the greatest Poker-Face of all time. He won the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite holding only a Joker, a Get out of Jail Free Monopoly card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game Uno.

    Never good when you hear the words "tearing...off the bone". Good luck in your recovery Lachie - I'll definitely miss foreign commentators mispronouncing your name
