All Blacks flanker Sam Cane is set to make his stunning return to the rugby field from a broken neck within the next fortnight.

Cane has been sidelined for the last seven months, recovering after he sustained a small fracture in the lower part of his neck while playing a Test against the Springboks last year.

TVNZ reports the 27‑year‑old went down after an awkward collision with South African loosie Francois Louw and as a result underwent emergency surgery in hospital.

Cane has since been making a slow recovery but Chiefs coach Colin Cooper confirmed today his sideline stint is almost over.

Cane was pencilled in for a comeback on May 24 when the Chiefs host the Reds in Hamilton but a return this week would see him thrown into a physical battle with the Blues at Eden Park.

The Chiefs meet the Blues at 7.35pm Saturday.
