All injuries are a scare in a World Cup year!

4 May 2015 8:19 AM
All the sporting injuries that MATTER in the world of sport - and how they can add pressure to football teams facing relegation.

As it comes down to the wire in the Super Rugby season, Hurricanes player Beauden Barrett has joined All-Black teammates Carter and Cruden on the Sports Injury List with a knee injury.

The relegation dogfight in England - and also locally in our PSL - features on the #SportsInjuryList because injured players critically affect squad size and depth of talent at crunch time... as Zac mentions, Newcastle is a great example of this!

And having lost to Floyd Mayweather, the news after Sunday morning's big fight is that Pacquio was fighting with a shoulder injury. Do athletes keep quiet so as not to alert opponents to a weakness or is it just a good excuse if things don't go your way?

Listen to Dr Zac van Heerden's full chat with Marc Lewis here...
