Masaga joins All Blacks squad as cover for Wulf

6:48 pm on 11 June 2009

The Chiefs winger Lelia Masaga has been called into the All Black squad to face France in Saturday's opening Test as cover for Rudi Wulf, who's picked up an injury at training in Dunedin.

The team doctor Deb Robinson says Wulf's in pain after landing quite heavily on his left shoulder.

The injury is being x-rayed and a final decision will be made tomorrow.

Masaga, 22, has yet to play for the All Blacks but he's represented New Zealand at under-21 level and performed strongly in this year's Super 14.
