Watch: Double blow - Aaron Cruden botches cross-field kick before tearing hamstring

Ex-All Black flyhalf Aaron Cruden had a cruel sixty seconds he will want to forget quickly in Montpellier’s Top 14 clash at home against league leaders Clermont.

With his side hot on attack, Cruden looked to push the ball to the wide channels via a cross-field kick, which he undercooked. Clermont winger Damian Penaud welcomed the ball into his arms and took off downfield, taking it back 90-metres to score at the other end.

Cruelly for Cruden, he tore his hamstring in pursuit of the flying Clermont winger, ending his match.

Clermont edged Montpellier 28-23 with the botched kick proving the difference.
