Rugby: Doubt remains over McCaw, Williams
Sat, 21 Jun 2008 10:33p.m.

The extent of ankle injuries to All Blacks forwards Richie McCaw and Ali Williams remained unclear in the wake of tonight's 44-12 second test rugby defeat of England here.
World class flanker McCaw limped off in the 28th minute favouring his left ankle after he twisted it and fell awkwardly in an incident behind play.
An ankle injury also forced lock Ali Williams off in the 15th minute.
Both were taken from AMI Stadium for x-rays and the results wouldn't be known until tomorrow, coach Graham Henry said.
"They look reasonably serious to me but we won't know any more until we get the x-rays and get the result," Henry said.
It remains to be seen whether the pair will be available for first test of the Tri-Nations against South Africa in Wellington on July 5.
it's just the ankle (I thought it could be the knee!)
