The Cardiff Blues flyer suffered a broken right leg in the 31-0 second Test loss to Australia in Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium. Czekaj suffered the injury in the 22nd minute, twisting badly in a tackle by Wallaby hooker Stephen Moore.
The 21-year-old underwent surgery in Brisbane on Sunday and has been told he cannot fly home for at least 14 days. However, the Welsh Rugby Union is flying Czekaj’s girlfriend out to Australia to keep him company until he can return to Wales.
We wish him a speedy and painless recovery.
The video shows him twisting and literally breaking his leg. It’s up for reference purposes. If you don’t approve then don’t watch. A lot of people didn’t see this live and requested it.
