    TOKYO (AP) — If the decision was left to Brodie Retallick, he’d be running out for the All Blacks next week.

    When it comes to persuading the New Zealand medical team he’s ready to play in the Rugby World Cup after dislocating his left shoulder more than eight weeks ago, Retallick admitted Monday, with a grin: “I’ve been trying.”

    The real decision-makers know better.

    “You never totally trust a competitive person like Brodie. He’ll tell you he’s 100 percent,” assistant coach Ian Foster said, also grinning.

    Retallick sustained the dislocation and nerve damage when he was illegally cleared out of a ruck by South Africa’s RG Snyman in a test on July 27. Retallick accepted the injury as part of the game. “I’m not owed an apology,” he said.
