Video session rules Muliaina out of Super 14 match

8:35 am on 19 February 2009

A piece of paper has managed to do what a match against defending Super 14 champions the Crusaders couldn't - rule All Blacks fullback Mils Muliaina out of this week's game.

Just one game into the season and already the Chiefs coach Ian Foster has injury concerns with the experienced pair of Muliaina and Sione Lauaki out for Friday night's game against the New South Wales Waratahs in Sydney.

Lauaki left the field late in the game against the Crusaders with a tight hamstring and hasn't come right while Foster says it seems his team meetings may be responsible for Muliaina's plight.

Muliaina strained his back reaching for a piece of paper detailing a team meeting.
