Pool A latest – Read ready for action

Keo.co.za brings you the latest World Cup news from Pool A.

Read ready for action – Kieran Read is expected to be available for the All Blacks’ final pool match against Canada on Sunday.

All Blacks assistant coach Steve Hansen is confident the No 8 will make a full recovery from his ankle injury and start in Wellington.

The other bit of good news for New Zealand is that three of the four players injured in Saturday’s win over France will be available to play Canada. Israel Dagg (thigh), Adam Thomson (knee, ankle) and Cory Jane (head knock) are all on the mend, but Richard Kahui (hamstring ) won’t be risked.
