Kahui available to play this weekend

  • Waikato/Bay of Plenty

Despite hamstring problems, Richard Kahui is certain he'll be available for this weekend's clash against the Sharks.  Kahui's fate lies in the hands of the team's medical staff and he'll find out what that is on Thursday.

Richard Kahui has showed real determination to make a full recovery from a hamstring problem.  Kahui strained his left hamstring in the Chiefs' 25-20 loss to the Waratahs on the weekend.

The Chiefs have had a disappointing two-loss run that only stands to get tougher this week when they face the Sharks.  The Sharks clash will be a repeat of last year's final.

Despite Aaron Cruden nursing an ankle problem, we can confirm he'll be available to play this week.
