McCaw will play

7:00 am on 7 October 2011

All Black assistant coach Steve Hansen says captain Richie McCaw's niggling foot injury won't stop him playing in Sunday night's rugby World Cup quarter-final and he'll be available for as long as they're in the tournament.

Hansen says McCaw has to have the injury managed but isn't risking long-term damage and wouldn't be played if he was.
