ABs captain set for Super 14 return

5:44 pm on 17 April 2009

The All Blacks skipper Richie McCaw says he'll have to take a measured approach to his comeback this weekend for the Crusaders Super 14 match against the competition leaders the Sharks in Durban.

McCaw hasn't played since suffering a knee ligament strain in the loss to the Highlanders at the start of last month.

Meanwhile the Hurricanes coach Colin Cooper has decided not to risk Piri Weepu's hamstring, and he'll be sitting out tomorrow's game against the Stormers in Wellington.
