Dagg doubtful for Kiwi derby
25 Jun 2012
Israel Dagg sustained an ankle injury in last Saturday’s Test and is unlikely to play in the Crusaders’ match against the Hurricanes.
Dagg sprained his ankle in the All Blacks’ massive win over Ireland. If he is not cleared for the coming match against the Hurricanes, coach Todd Blackadder may look to Tom Marshall to fill the void at fullback.
The Crusaders may also be without All Blacks Dan Carter (hamstring) and Kieran Read (head knock), who missed the recent Test in Hamilton with injuries.
