The Chiefs coach Ian Foster says All Blacks halfback Brendon Leonard will stay with the team in South African although his chest injury could keep him out of Super 14 rugby for two to six weeks.

Foster says it's hard to predict how long Leonard will take to recover after injuring the joint that connects his collarbone and sternum during the win over the Cheetahs that's taken the Chiefs to the top of the table.
