Watch: Freddie Burns shares horrific new footage that will see him sidelined in NZ

Freddie Burns has taken to social media to share footage of a terrible injury that will see him out of action for the foreseeable future.

The footage shows Burns’ foot bending in a completely unnatural way which resulted in a anterior tibial plateau fracture.

Despite the horrific outcome, the former Leicester Tiger counted himself lucky that it was not a worse injury and that he should still be able to play rugby again.

It’s such a shame for a player who is so popular within the entire rugby community.

Watch the incident below:

Burns’ injury only compounds the issues faced by the Highlanders. Aside from their poor start to the season, they are now missing a staggering 12 players due to injury – although they are keen not to use this as an excuse.

The current (extensive) list of casualties are below:

  • Along with Marty Banks (groin),
  • Jona Nareki (foot),
  • Marino Mikaele Tu’u (ribs),
  • Scott Gregory (knee),
  • Jeff Thwaites (back),
  • Will Tucker (groin)
  • Vili Koroi (knee)
  • Saula Ma’u (chest)
  • Freddie Burns (knee)
  • Josh Dickson (illness)
  • Paripari Parkinson (concussion)
  • Mosese Dawai (knee)

Despite the odds being against them, the Highlanders will be looking to bounce back after their 28-7 loss against the Chiefs when they face Western Force on Sunday 19th March.
