All Blacks prop Joe Moody has been ruled out of the European tour after splitting his eyelid at training.

Coach Steve Hansen says the injury happened "in unusual fashion" during lineout practice when another player's finger caught Moody's eyelid.

He required three layers of stitches and will be out of rugby for six weeks.

The All Blacks team to play England will be named later today.

The All Blacks will take on England at 4am this Sunday.

The All Blacks also play Ireland and Italy on their end of year tour.
