Fotuali'i stood down

6:47 pm on 11 May 2010

Crusaders halfback Kahn Fotuali'i has been stood down by team management for this Friday night's home Super 14 rugby match against the Brumbies.

Fotuali'i breached a recovery protocol after the match against the Bulls in Pretoria last weekend.

The Crusaders name their side for the must-win tomorrow, while all the New Zealand and Australian teams still in contention will be very interested to see the Bulls' team sheet... the champions from South Africa are believed to be set to field a 'B' team against the Stormers in Cape Town, which could hand the Stormers a home semi-final, to go with the Bulls' home playoff.

It was very much the Bulls' second-stringers who went through their drills in the team's first training session for the week.
