The Crusaders have a few more injury concerns after their 30-24 Super 14 defeat by the Hurricanes in Christchurch last night.

Centre Casey Laulala injured his right shoulder, winger Kade Poki injured his ankle and lock Brad Thorn and prop Ben Franks suffered foot injuries.

Poki is unlikely to available to play next weekend against the Highlanders, while the others will be assessed during the week.

Fullback Leon MacDonald and halfback Andy Ellis, who missed last night's match will undergo fitness tests this week.
