Wellington - All Blacks hooker Corey Flynn is likely to miss the rest of the Super 14 season after X-rays on Monday revealed he had broken the radius in his left forearm.

Flynn suffered the injury in the Crusaders' 18-16 loss to the Brumbies on Saturday.

He broke the same arm on the All Blacks' grand slam tour last November and Saturday's injury was the fourth time he had suffered a fracture in his left arm.

In 2002 he broke it playing in domestic competition and again the following year while playing for the Crusaders. Last year, he fractured his right arm while playing in the Super 14 semi-final against the Wellington Hurricanes.

"It's really unfortunate, especially for Corey who has had some terrible luck with both of his arms," Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder said on the team's website (http://www.crusaders.co.nz).

The Crusaders host the Hurricanes in the third round of this year's Super 14 on Friday.
