Injury concern for Richie McCaw

10:05 am on 27 April 2010

The Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder says he won't be making many changes to his side after their Super 14 play-off hopes took a bit of a dent with the loss to the Western Force last weekend.

The Crusaders slipped to third after the loss and take on the second-placed Stormers in Cape Town on Saturday.

Blackadder was disappointed with the accuracy and intensity of some of his players, but says he'll give them the opportunity to make amends this week.

Meanwhile Blackadder says captain Richie McCaw is the only real injury concern this week and he's been taking it easy at training.

McCaw is still a bit sore after last week's match but Blackadder is confident he'll play in his 100th match for the Crusaders.
