More injury worries for All Blacks

11:13 am on 21 June 2009

The All Blacks are facing yet another injury crisis after levelling the series against France last night in Wellington with first five-eighth Stephen Donald in doubt for the next Test against Italy.

The Waikato and Chiefs playmaker injured a hamstring as New Zealand won 14-10 in wet and cold conditions.

The All Blacks have been plagued by injuries with first choice number 10 Dan Carter still out with an Achilles injury and a clear lack of top level depth in the position.

Donald admits he didn't have a great game against the French, but says he'll learn from it and move on, and the experience will be valuable for him.
