DAVID RAIKUNA is the latest Blues player to join the casualty ward.
Raikuna has been ruled out of the side’s clash against the Stormers in Cape Town tomorrow morning (NZT) after pulling a hamstring at training.
His place in the starting XV has gone to the uncapped Ben Lam, coach Pat Lam’s nephew.
Raikuna joins Anthony Boric, Jerome Kaino, Isaia Toeava, George Moala and Rudi Wulf in the sick-bay.
Michael Hobbs is on bereavement leave following the death of his father, Rene Ranger has been suspended for two weeks and prop Tony Woodcock won’t return until the following weekend’s game against the Hurricanes at Eden Park.
