McCaw no certainty for Crusaders must-win match

12:09 pm on 5 May 2009

Hopeful but by no means certain is the prognosis for All Blacks skipper Richie McCaw over whether he'll play for the Crusaders in their Super 14 match against the Queensland Reds in Christchurch on Friday night.

McCaw missed the Crusaders' win over the Lions in Johannesburg at the weekend after being concussed the previous week against the Cheetahs.

The Crusaders have arrived back home in sixth spot but need to win their final two matches to make the semis and coach Todd Blackadder says McCaw's involvement is still unclear at this stage.
