Conrad to miss match with Blues

  • Conrad to miss match with Blues

Hurricanes captain Conrad Smith will miss this weekend's clash with the Blues because of a knock to the head in a 22-18 win over the Chiefs on Saturday.

Smith went for a concussion test during the match and did not return.

Despite having passed the test and having no symptoms since, he will take his second mandatory All Blacks rest this weekend.
