Brutal injury could keep Steffon Armitage sidelined for rest of the year
Scans revealed that the 32-year-old ruptured his Achilles, an injury that generally has a rehabilitation period of at least six months.
The club website stated yesterday: “Steffon undertook exams this morning that confirmed a rupture of the Achilles tendon. His rehabilitation will remove him for between 6 to 9 months.”
The injury has been operated on by surgeons.

Armitage won five caps for England before moving to Toulon and then in 2016 to Pau.
It’s been a poor spell for the club, both on the pitch and on the injuries front too. All Black flyhalf Colin Slade has also suffered a hamstring injury.
Cardiff’s reward is a clash with last year’s runners-up Gloucester at San Mames Stadium on May 11.
