Christie ruled out of remainder of Super Rugby season

The Pulse Energy Highlanders have announced today that Shane Christie has been ruled out of selection for the remainder of 2017 Investec Super Rugby season.

Christie’s specific condition is not currently diagnosed, but he has been experiencing concussion like symptoms.

His condition has been extensively managed by Highlanders medical staff, with support from New Zealand Rugby and includes independent assessment of his situation. In the interests of Christie’s health it has been decided to rule him out of selection so he can focus on his recovery.

Head Coach Tony Brown added “it’s unfortunate for the team and Shane that we won’t see him in our colours this year but we fully support the medical decision not to play to assist his recovery.”

Christie will remain with the team as part of the leadership group for the rest of the season.

Shane Christie will not be providing any media comment.
