    Cape Town - Kings back Hadleigh Parkes is set to be out for long after breaking his arm in his side’s loss to the Hurricanes in Wellington, New Zealand on Saturday.

    New Zealander Parkes, who played on the wing on Saturday, left the field in the 29th minute of the match, won 46-30 by the Hurricanes.

    Kings director of rugby, Alan Solomons, confirmed that Parkes immediately underwent surgery.

    Solomons said a replacement for Parkes will be flown in from South Africa.
