The All Blacks captain Richie McCaw says he's recovering well from surgery on his injured foot but still won't put on a date on his likely return to the field.

McCaw was troubled for much of last year by a stress fracture in his right foot and a screw, inserted in February was removed in November.

He expects to return to running next month although he will miss the first few weeks of Super rugby which starts in a month's time.
