Flynn's rugby career in doubt?

6:04 am on 24 February 2009

The rugby career of Crusaders hooker Corey Flynn may well be in doubt after confirmation he's re-broken his left arm.

Scans today confirmed the break which occurred in the Crusaders loss to the ACT Brumbies in Canberra at the weekend.

It's the same arm he broke while playing for the All Blacks on their end-of-year tour of the U.K. and the fourth broken arm Flynn's had in the past seven years.

Halfback Andy Ellis, who suffered an ankle sprain in the match, is in doubt for Friday's match against the Hurricanes in Christchurch.

While no decision has yet been made on flanker Richie McCaw and Brad Thorn.

McCaw missed the Brumbies match with concussion while Thorn has a heel injury.

Definitely out though is fullback Leon MacDonald who's still recovering from a shoulder injury.
