English rugby club Saracens lose second halfback to injury

6:49 pm on 21 January 2009

The Fijian rugby captain Moses Rauluni will be out of action for eight to 10 weeks after undergoing knee surgery.

English Club Saracens confirmed halfback Rauluni damaged knee cartilage during a European Challenge Cup match against Viadana on Sunday

South African international halfback Neil de Kock is also sidelined with a broken arm and coach Eddie Jones says it's a major blow losing two halfbacks in the space of a week.

However it's not all bad news for Saracens as the English Club signed former New Zealand number nine Justin Marshall on a short-term contract last week.
