All black flanker and captain Richie McCaw will miss the first month of the 2011 Supre Rugby competition after fracturing a bone in his right foot.

The injury happened during the Crusaders’ fitness test on monday. He will have to have surgery.

Crusaders 8th man Keiran Reid will take over the captaincy until he gets back.

  • Well this should open the door very wide for Matt Todd a promising young player with AB prospects to make a name for himself.

  • @robdylan (Comment 7) : It doesn`t really matter if he`s back.

    Feels like years to go still, we`ll deal with it when we get there eventually.
