Hurricanes halfback in doubt for Crusaders match

6:53 pm on 16 April 2012

The Hurricanes have a major injury concern ahead of their super rugby match against the Crusaders in Wellington on Saturday night.

First choice halfback T J Perenara rolled an ankle at training today, the side's first day back after having a week off with the bye.

Coach Mark Hammett says he's unsure how serious the injury is but it happened during a basketball session the players were doing in the gym this morning.

If Perenara is ruled out he'll be replaced by Chris Eaton.
