Crusaders prepare for 2012 season

The Crusaders have welcomed back their World Cup-winning All Blacks and are amping up their pre-season training for this year's Super Rugby competition.

With the exception of Dan Carter, who is injured and on his honeymoon, the Crusaders were put through their paces today at Rugby Park.

Embattled winger Zac Guildford sat out much of training with a groin injury, while Richie McCaw and Corey Flynn were also bit-part players because of injury and the limited amount of work they are allowed to do.

McCaw was uncertain when he would be able to play as he continues to recover from a  foot injury but said "it definitely won't be the first two or three weeks" of the competition.

Guildford will miss the side's pre-season clashes and the first competition match because of an New Zealand Rugby Union-imposed ban - a punishment for his alcohol-fuelled outburst in Rarotonga late last year.

The Crusaders will begin their Super campaign in Auckland against the Blues on February 24 in the first match of the 2012 competition.

Guildford will speak about cutting alcohol out of his life and putting his past behind him in tomorrow's edition of The Press and on press.co.nz
