McCaw out with rib injury

11:40 am on 27 June 2014

The All Blacks captain Richie McCaw will miss the last three rounds of Super Rugby after suffering a rib injury in the Test series against England.

The injury happened in either the first or second Test against England, but he played on.

McCaw will hopefully return in time for the playoffs, if the Crusaders make it.

The Crusaders are third in the Super Rugby standings and their last three regular season matches are against the Hurricanes, Blues and Highlanders.
