McCaw should be back this week

8:14 am on 9 September 2008

It looks like All Blacks captain Richie McCaw will start against the Wallabies in the Tri-Nations decider in Brisbane this weekend.

McCaw took a full part in training yesterday, having missed last week's match against Samoa because of sore ribs.

Lock Brad Thorn and winger Sitiveni Sivivatu also took part in training yesterday, which could mean coach Graham Henry will be able to pick an unchanged lineup for the third straight Tri-Nations match.
