All Black Sam Cane is back running after suffering a neck fracture during last year’s Rugby Championship.
Cane posted a photo on his Instagram of himself running, writing "good way to start the New Year, first time getting into a jog in over 3 months".
"I got the neck brace off just before Xmas and am now easing back into some rehab, strength & conditioning work, which I’m loving and is also much needed after grazing in a pretty good paddock for these last few months."
The openside flanker broke his neck in the 32-30 win over the Springboks in Pretoria in early October.
The 26-year-old, who remained in South Africa for surgery, said in November that he was planning a return to rugby in May with the Chiefs, potentially in the last four or five rounds of Super Rugby.
