All Blacks coach Steve Hansen will be forced to reshuffle his side for this week's Rugby Championship clash with South Africa after Brodie Retallick and Ngani Laumape were ruled out with injury.

Both were replaced in the 10th minute of the All Blacks' 46‑24 victory over Argentina in Nelson on Saturday, Retallick injuring his right shoulder after falling awkwardly in a tackle and Laumape suffering a knee ligament injury.

Hansen has revealed that Auckland Blues lock Patrick Tuipulotu has been called into the squad as cover for Retallick.

The All Blacks will now take on the Springboks at 7.35pm this Saturday while the Wallabies will take on Argentina at 10pm Saturday.
