All Blacks prop Ofa Tu’ungafasi says he had no intention to injure French winger Remy Grosso during the first Test last night.
Grosso was hospitalised with reported facial fractures suffered in a tackle at Eden Park involving Tu’ungafasi and flanker Sam Cane.
Remy, I hope you’re recovering well. It was a physical game and it wasn’t my intention to hurt you. I’m also gutted that I didn’t get to see u after the game and u weren’t well for me to visit u in hospital this morning before we left but I hope to catch up soon brother.🙏🏽❤ pic.twitter.com/De803BCtgw

Tu’ungafasi took to Twitter today to wish Grosso well in his recovery while also revealing the Frenchman was not well enough for the All Blacks prop to visit.
