February 29, 2000
Otago Highlanders and All Black prop Carl Hoeft is likely to miss the Highlanders' second game against the Sharks in Dunedin on Friday.
Hoeft strained a calf muscle during the Highlanders' thrashing of the Queensland Reds last Friday , but the injury is not thought to be a recurrence of the injury that disrupted Hoeft's 1999 All Black season.
Hoeft's likely replacment is Joe McDonnell.
