1:27 pm on 21 May 2009

The Hurricanes lock Jeremy Thrush continues to receive treatment on the elbow he injured at training yesterday and remains in contention for tomorrow night's Super 14 semi-final against the Chiefs in Hamilton.

He will travel with the squad to Hamilton today, but a decision on his participation isn't expected until tomorrow afternoon.

If he doesn't play he'll be replaced by Bryn Evans, while Api Naikatini would join the squad.
