It is never pleasant having to spend time off the field, especially not when you need to have surgery more than once, but unfortunately, for Warriors second-rower Micheal Luck, that is exactly the case, with the Warriors defensive workhorse requiring a second surgery on his wrist.
The second surgery comes as a result of the first surgery not working correctly, with Luck playing in the 2011 grand final, with a fractured wrist.
Warriors Team Doctor John Mayhew, says that luck will require a bone graft this time around, in order to repair the damage that has been caused by the first surgery.
â€œItâ€™s a setback but thatâ€™s the way it goes. Thereâ€™s no point worrying about it,â€ Luck told www.warriors.co.nz.
â€œWhatâ€™s most important to me is doing everything to help the boys get ready for the start of the season.
â€œI was already starting the season a bit late after the shoulder surgery I had before Christmas. Now itâ€™ll just be a bit later.â€
