Possible end of season and career for Nick Abendanon, biceps surgery

Does this injury sound the death knell for Nick Abendanon’s career? The 36-year-old English fullback, injured in the defeat of his club, RC Vannes against Agen at the Stade de la Rabine on January 12, has had successful biceps surgery, the Breton club announced on Monday morning. With this injury and this operation, the end of Nick Abendanon’s season is seriously compromised because he will be ” absent several months “.

But beyond the season, which the player had announced as his last as a professional rugby player, it is therefore the end of the career of the ex-Clermontois (115 matches between 2014 and 2020) which could happen more sooner than expected. A blow also for the Vannetais club which counted a lot on the English international (2 selections) to reach the qualification in the final phase of Pro D2. Abendanon has played nine games this season, all as starters.
