Prop Afoa the All Blacks' latest injury worry

9:16 am on 23 October 2008

The All Blacks have another injury scare concerning the prop John Afoa following their match against a Blues Barbarian selection on a hard ground in West Auckland.

Coach Graham Henry says Afoa's injured a knee in the trial game and they'll know more on his condition today.

Henry says another prop, Neemia Tialata, and the halfback Andy Ellis, who're set to face off in the provincial final between Wellington and Canterbury on Saturday, are improving.

Henry says while Ellis is much better than first thought and should be fine for the tour, he's not sure if the Canterbury No.9 will be fit for the final.
