The Blues All Black prop Tony Woodcock is still battlng an ear infection and will miss Friday night's Super 14 clash with the New South Wales Waratahs in Auckland.

It'll be the third game Woodcock's sat out and the team's doctor can't say when he'll play again.

Stephen Karah the viral inner ear infection is affecting Woodcock's balance and his training's restricted to using an exercycle and doing seated weights.

He says it could come right in a couple of days but it could also last for another three or four weeks.

In the meantime Dr Karah says Woodcock's lost a bit of weight and match fitness.
