Date published: February 13 2017

The Chiefs have suffered a triple injury setback that includes scrum-half Brad Weber being ruled out for six months with a fractured femur.

Weber, an excellent performer last season in Super Rugby, suffered the nasty injury to his thigh bone at the Brisbane 10s over the weekend.

He requires surgery while Mitchell Graham fractured his tibia and fibula and will also need surgery. He’s estimated to be out for a minimum of six months while Fin Hoeata suffered ligament damage to his ankle that requires surgery, with his estimated return being two to three months.
