More injury woes for Kahui

8:00 am on 15 May 2012

The Chiefs centre Richard Kahui is ruing his luck as another shoulder injury looks set to ruin his chances of playing for the All Blacks this year.

Kahui's shoulder problems have resulted in him playing just 17 tests since his debut in 2008 and his performances in the World Cup last year looked set to secure him a starting place for some time to come.

However his shoulder popped out again in Sunday night's Super Rugby loss to the Reds in Brisbane.

He'll have a scan on it later this week.

Kahui's injury could open up the way for Zac Guildford or Hosea Gear to join the squad.
