http://www.rugbyworld.com/Story/0,18830,3551_3322438,00.html Concussed Blues fly-half Nick Evans has backed himself to recover in time for his team's Super 14 battle with the Stormers at Eden Park on Saturday. Evans was forced to leave the field when accidently struck by team-mate Nick Williams' elbow during the defeat to the Western Force at North Harbour Stadium last weekend. The All Black star said on Wednesday that he was feeling physically much better than the morning after the 27-17 loss to the Force. "I felt like I had St Paddy's Day on Saturday and woke up on Sunday feeling pretty ordinary, but I've been pretty good the last couple of days," Evans told NZPA. "It's all new to me," he said of getting a heavy blow to the head. "It's the first one that I've had, so we'll treat the symptoms as they come." Blues coach David Nucifora is set to name his matchday 22 to face the Stormers in Auckland on Thursday. Evans took it easy in training early this week but, based on his present state, believed he would be able to take his place in the side. Results from psychometric testing had been positive and it was now more a case of how he went on the practice paddock. "If it was up to me, I'd be out there doing all the training and wanting to play as soon as possible," said Evans. "But I have to be careful and take some account of my own health and the health of the team as well." Evans has been in good early season form and was confident the injury would not halt his momentum. "Head knocks happen out of the blue and anyone could fall victim," he said. "I'll just keep doing what I'm doing. "Hopefully, if I play this Saturday, I'll improve on what I've been doing the first half of the season." I cant believe he could be back playing this weekend, i thought it was a great coup for the Stormers to have him injured but now hes back i see the game being completely different. It looked like he was going to be out for atleast a month as well, great news for Blues supporters.
