The Hurricanes anticipate being without captain and All Blacks centre Conrad Smith for at least a couple of weeks after he was knocked unconscious in the side's 48-14 Super rugby loss to the Bulls in Pretoria this morning.

Coach Mark Hammett says it'll be 24 hours before there's a prognosis for Smith who was taken to hospital for a scan, after being forced from the field in the first half.
