McAlister cleared of serious injury

11:32 am on 27 September 2010

North Harbour's All Black five-eighth Luke McAlister has been cleared of any serious injury after he was forced to leave the field with an injured jaw early in the second half during Harbour's NPC victory over Manawatu.

The good news is McAlister's jaw was bruised but not broken, meaning he's expected to play a full part in training this week and be available for selection against Counties-Manukau.
