New Zealand wing Will Jordan will miss the upcoming Super Rugby Pacific season for Crusaders following a shoulder injury.

Jordan, who played a pivotal role in New Zealand's World Cup campaign last year in France has been carrying the injury since the last season according to Crusaders and might require a surgery to address the issue.

His absence will be a decisive blow for Crusaders, who begin their campaign under new head coach Rob Penney after Scott Robertson took up the New Zealand job.

Jordan will also be missing the two Test match series against England in July as he is expected to be on the sidelines for up to six months according to a statement released by Crusaders.

“After assessment from the Crusaders medical team he will undergo surgery and as a result be unavailable for selection during the 2024 Super Rugby Pacific season,” read the statement.

“He is expected to be fit to return to play in approximately six months.”

Crusaders will kick-start the new Super Rugby Pacific season with a clash against Chiefs at FMG Stadium Waikato on 23rd February.
