McCaw okay after first match back

The Crusaders are looking forward to their second match in South Africa as their Super 14 resurgance continues.

The defending champions are eighth in the standings, just three points out of a play-off position - not bad after starting the season with just a win from five matches.

The Crusaders remain in Durban preparing for their next match and assistant coach Darryl Gibson says their All Black captain Richie McCaw has come through the narrow win over the Sharks relatively unscathed.

The Crusaders play the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein in Sunday morning
