Kronfeld back from injury
February 16, 2000
The Otago Highlanders will be strengthened by the return of Josh Kronfeld for their final pre-season game against the Brumbies on Thursday night.The 50 cap All Black veteran , who has not played in any of the Highlanders' previous warm-up games, has recovered enough to be given a place on the substitutes' bench. The Highlanders, beaten favourites in Super 12 1999, will need Kronfeld at full fitness if they are to challenge seriously this year. Kronfeld has hinted strongly that this will be his last year of top flight rugby in New Zealand.
The full Highlanders line up is :
15. Marc Ellis
16. Rico Gear
Concussion, relegation and the mother of all surprises - it's the Monday Maul.
