New Zealand have a cause of concern ahead of their departure to the UK for the three-Test tour of England as Henry Nicholls picked up a calf injury at training. The team is scheduled to depart in two groups on Saturday and Sunday and at a pre-tour camp in Mt Maunganui head coach Gary Stead revealed the middle-order batter had sustained the injury to his right leg when going through some running drills on Monday. If he were to be ruled out, the visitors will have to scramble a back-up option for the middle-order.
