(Rugby) All Blacks scrumhalf Weepu suffers minor stroke
(03-27 10:42)

New Zealand All Blacks scrumhalf Piri Weepu has suffered a minor stroke which went undetected for almost a month as he was treated for severe headaches.
Steven Kara, doctor for Weepu's Blues Super Rugby team, said a scan on Monday had revealed the 30-year-old player likely suffered the stroke earlier this month. Kara said the condition was unlikely to be rugby related.
Weepu has complained of migraine-like symptoms since March 1 but the cause of his illness was not detected.—AP
