Meeuws could be out for the season

8:00 am on 5 December 2008

The rugby career of the former All Black prop Kees Meeuws could be over after he ruptured his achilles playing for his Welsh club, The Scarlets.

34-year-old Meeuws is definelty out for the rest of the Northern season.

Scarlets boss Nigel Davies says if anybody can come back then he can, but in all honesty he can't say whether he will or he won't.

Meeuws' fellow countryman Deacon Manu has recovered from injury to line up at tight-head prop in the Heineken Cup at Ulster this weekend.
