    Highlanders lose Parker for the season

    2017-01-26 13:51

    Cape Town - The Highlanders will be without flyhalf Hayden Parker this Super Rugby season after he was ruled out with a knee injury, it was confirmed on Thursday.

    Parker, 26, ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, which has opened the door to Marty Banks signing as temporary cover.

    "We are all pretty gutted for Hayden," head coach Tony Brown told AAP.

    "He has worked so hard to get back to fitness and was really looking forward to the season. We wish him well with his rehab."

    Banks is now set to act as back-up to starting No 10, Lima Sopoaga.
