Injured Umaga out for six weeks
Tana Umaga
Umaga retired from Test rugby in January
Former All Blacks captain Tana Umaga will be sidelined for at least six weeks after severely injuring a finger playing for Wellington on Friday.

Umaga had to have surgery to re-attach the tip of the finger to the bone after it was left hanging by a single tendon.

The 33-year-old was playing in his side's 11-6 win over Bay of Plenty in New Zealand's provincial championship

The injury is unlikely to prevent Umaga from joining up with French club Toulon on a 12-month deal in October.

Umaga, who retired from Test rugby in January, scored 36 tries in 74 Tests for the All Blacks, the last 21 as captain.
