Newcastle Falcons Rugby Club would like to wish Jersey centre Mark McCrea a speedy recovery after sustaining a dislocated ankle during yesterday’s RFU Championship match with the Channel Islanders at Kingston Park.
McCrea was carried off on a stretcher after a collision in a tackle and was taken to Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI) where it was confirmed that he had dislocated his ankle as well as fracturing his fibula with ligament damage.
Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards said: “I’m sure I speak on behalf of everyone at the club in sending our best wishes to Mark.
“It was an unfortunate incident and as a club we will do everything we can to assist Jersey at this time.”
Newcastle won the game 34-12 to extend their unbeaten run to 26 games. Nottingham are the visitors to the North East this Friday in the British and Irish Cup with tickets priced at just £10 adults and £5 juniors (kick-off 8pm).
