Luke McAlister will miss the Blues Super 14 semi-final against the Sharks after picking up a hamstring injury in Friday night’s win over the Western Force.


McAlister heads back to Auckland while the rest of the team leaves Sydney for Durban where they will play the Sharks on Saturday.



The Blues say McAlister will be available for the final if the Blues make it past the Sharks.


Assistant coach Joe Schmidt spoke to NZPA and said McAlister’s influence would be missed in midfield.


“Luke may be OK if we get one more week out of this tournament,” Schmidt was quoted saying.
