Crusaders skipper Richie McCaw's comeback from injury will have to wait another three to four weeks.
McCaw was pencilled in to play some part in the Christchurch franchise's match with the Stormers next Saturday, but he has recently conceded that his return will have to wait a while longer.
The All Blacks skipper has been absent since the 2011 World Cup and he claims that he is wary over rushing his return to the field.
"I've been progressing slowly," he told the Sunday Star-Times. "People ask when I'm going to be back and I'm reluctant to put time on it because I'm still not really 100 per cent sure.
"It's just a matter of progressing as you need to. From straight running to changing directions, I'm just doing that so hopefully before too long before I'll be back with boots on and training, getting match fit."
