Kahui doubtful starter for Super 14 semi final

6:38 pm on 18 May 2009

The injury news only gets worse for the Chiefs ahead of Friday's Super 14 rugby semi-final against the Hurricanes in Hamilton.

All Black centre Richard Kahui is still troubled by a bruised calf and didn't train today, and coach Ian Foster doubts he'll be ready by Friday.

He was named to start against the ACT Brumbies last round but withdraw before kick off.

Kahui's injury adds to a list which also sees prop Ben May and halfback Brendon Leonard out for the next several weeks with a knee injury and torn hamstring respectively.
