    Hurricanes hooker Andrew Hore has reportedly been given the all-clear to join the side in Johannesburg, although he is unlikely to
    play in this weekend’s match against the Lions.

    Hore returned to action for the Hurricanes last weekend but copped an “innocent” finger in the eye which caused to him to suffer from
    blurred vision during the loss to the Bulls and, after medical advice, he did not fly out to South Africa with the team.

    The All Black complained after the match that things had ooked “pretty fuzzy” after he received the poke in the eye.

    Due to the timing issue and the length of the journey to the Republic it is unlikely that he will play for the Canes this weekend but Stuff report that he is likely to return against the Sharks next weekend.
