All Blacks midfielder Jack Goodhue will miss this week's Bledisloe Cup decider after suffering a hamstring strain against the Wallabies in Perth.

The 24‑year‑old limped off midway through the first half in the All Blacks' 47‑26 loss last night.

Coach Steve Hansen confirmed Goodhue's injury concerns saying definitely he won't be available next week.

Newshub reports lock Scott Barrett will also likely miss the clash as he faces a Sanzaar foul play review committee hearing to discuss his red card offence.

Barrett became just the fourth All Black to see red in a test when referee Jerome Garcès red‑carded Barrett for a shoulder charge on Wallabies captain Michael Hooper.

He joins Sonny Bill Williams (2017), Sir Colin Meads (1967) and Cyril Brown (1925) as the only All Blacks to be sent off.

The Wallabies and All Blacks face off in the second Bledisloe Cup test at Eden Park in Auckland at 7.35pm this Saturday.
