Piri Weepu back training

9:28 am on 9 April 2014

The Blues halfback Piri Weepu has returned to training after he was forced out of the game last month because of a mild stroke.

An MRI scan after his return from South Africa a fortnight ago confirmed the stroke and he was expected to be out of action for a month.

Weepu has Tweeted that he had a gym session this morning and that it feels good to be back training again.

The former All Black is expected to make a full recovery.
