Donald in doubt for Italy test

4:20 pm on 21 June 2009

First five eighth Stephen Donald is the only major injury concern for the All Blacks following last night's 14-10 victory over France in the second test in Wellington.

Donald tweaked his hamstring taking a shot at goal before being substituted in the second half.

Assistant coach Steve Hansen says at this stage Donald doesn't look good for next weekend's test against Italy in Christchurch. He rates is chances as 40 per cent.

Hansen says if Donald isn't available they'll start with Luke McAlister at 10.
