The All Blacks’ injury crisis is showing no signs of becoming smaller with Israel Dagg the latest player set to join the list of long‑term injuries.
All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has revealed that Dagg’s ongoing knee problem has reached a point where it might require a major break from the game.
Dagg was not considered for Saturday’s Rugby Championship test and was replaced on the right wing by Nehe Milner‑Skudder.
Hansen said they were in the process of compiling more information on Dagg’s knee injury, with the 66‑test wing continuing to experience pain after matches.
The All Blacks will take on the Springboks at 7.35pm while the Wallabies will host Argentina at 10pm Saturday.
