Chiefs welcome back All Black centre

6:28 am on 5 March 2009

There's finally some good news for the winless Chiefs with All Blacks centre Richard Kahui returning to the lineup for their Super 14 match against the Western Force in Hamilton on Friday night.

Kahui has spent the last two weeks recovering from a hip injury but has passed a fitness test today and been cleared to play.

However they're still without All Black fullback Mils Muliaina and loose forward Sione Lauaki through injury.
