Pool A latest – Fresh concerns around Read

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

Fresh concerns around Read - All Blacks No 8 Kieran Read pulled up at training with a recurrence of the ankle injury that has curtailed his involvement at the World Cup.

He appeared to be in some discomfort and received attention from team doctors. Reports suggest Read should still be available for selection against Canada on Sunday, but the All Blacks’ selectors will hope the injury doesn’t regress and preclude him from selection for the quarter-final.
