Rugby: McCaw could be back earlier than expected

Richie McCaw could be back earlier than expected.
It was originally thought McCaw's ankle injury would keep him sidelined until the middle of next month. But the All Black captain says he wants to return two weeks early against the Wallabies in Auckland.

Today Richie McCaw was on hand to introduce the latest plan to get fans behind the All Blacks. Canterbury University's Engineering Department has come up with technology which can put up to 100,000 names on a single thread on an All Black jersey. Richie's name is already inscribed.
But the real news is that the dynamite flanker could be back from injury sooner than first thought.

“We go into camp on Sunday and I’ll be talking to medical staff and coaches as to what the plan is from there so hopefully we'll have something sorted that won't be too far down the track,” says McCaw.

McCaw suffered ankle ligament damage in last month's test against England. It was thought he would be out until mid-August but McCaw says his rehabilitation is coming along well. He could be back two weeks early for the Auckland Bledisloe Cup match in early August. “There's definitely a chance not ruling that out at all. As I say, it is little bits at a time, don't want to be silly about it either,” says McCaw.

McCaw's skills have been missed. South Africa showed up the All Blacks at the breakdown.
The All Blacks next match is against the Wallabies in Sydney on Saturday week, but they will not be wearing the newly invented flash new jerseys.

The first one will be presented to McCaw at the Bledisloe Cup match in Hong Kong later this year.
