Comtemponi Out For Six Months

Argentina fly-half Felipe Contepomi was ruled out of rugby for six months on Sunday with a cruciate ligament injury.

The Argentinean star (who wears Adidas Predator powerswerve rugby boots), 31, will not only miss the Heineken Cup final in May, but also pre-season and the first three months of next season’s Top 14 with Toulon, as well as Argentina’s tests against England in June.

“I am sad, but I want to face this as positively as possible,” he said to La Nacion.

“I only want to be calm to plan what to do, how to sort out the surgery. I know I will not be the first or the last player to suffer this injury.

“To miss the [Heineken Cup] final and what was coming at the Pumas is painful, but I know I cannot help this. The aim is to do everything to get over this and be stronger when I return.

“I will miss important matches, but I will be back in October, so it will not be so bad considering the time of the year this injury comes.”
