  • Chiefs coach Colin Cooper admitted Damian Mc Kenzie couldn't be replaced on an individual level

Coach Steve Hansen confirmed on Monday that Chiefs fullback McKenzie had damaged his anterior cruciate ligament during the Super Rugby win over the Blues on Saturday.

However, Hansen said an agreement with New Zealand Rugby and the five Kiwi Super Rugby franchises around the foundation days - another will be held in Auckland on May 20 for the North Island players and in Christchurch on June 3 for the South Islanders - meant only those involved with the All Blacks a year ago could be included.

McKenzie, who plays at fullback or flyhalf, has been a key figure in the two-playmaker structure New Zealand has fostered in recent seasons.

Speaking to reporters a few minutes ago, All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said it is a shame for McKenzie and the All Blacks but injuries do occur.

They used a rope to pull the shivering dog to safety, Payalaw said, adding that the rescue mission took about 15 minutes. We looked for a way to help her and in the end, chose to use the rope to tie around her body to lift her up.


McKenzie limped off the Waikato Stadium pitch after attempting to make a tackle early in the second half of the Chiefs' 33-29 victory. It's just important he gets his knee right and takes the time to be able to come back and achieve the dreams that he wants to achieve. It creates another opportunity for someone else. "He's just got to show us he's got the ability to do that on a weekly basis at Super level, then we have to make decisions".

Now, it looks as if the All Blacks selectors will have to change their plans.

Nonu - now 36 - played the last of his 103 tests for the All Blacks in the 2015 Rugby World Cup final before spending three seasons with French club Toulon.

The Rugby World will be held from September 20 to November 2.
