Braid back in AB camp, but probably not for long

The Blues loosie Daniel Braid is excited to be back in the All Blacks camp, but the chances of him playing in the Tri-Nations Bleisloe Cup clash against Australia this weekend are probably slim.

Captain Richie McCaw returned to camp on Monday, just over five weeks after injurying his ankle, and he took a part in most of the session which should see him return to action in Sydney.

Braid, who last played for the All Blacks during the 2003 World Cup campaign, says it was great to see McCaw back in the action even if it does mean he's likely to miss out again.

The All Blacks' other injury concern, lock Ali Williams, also took part in most of the training session in Wellington.
