McKenzie to miss World Cup


The All Blacks have been dealt a blow after it was confirmed that Damian McKenzie will miss the Rugby World Cup through injury.

McKenzie tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee playing for the Chiefs against the Blues at the weekend and he is set for several months on the sidelines, ruling him out of the tournament in Japan.

All Blacks head coach Steve Hansen insists injuries are part of the game and he expects others to be ruled out given the nature of the sport.

“It’s a real shame for him, his World Cup opportunity has gone," Hansen said.

“He’s still young enough to probably make the next two [World Cups] so it creates another opportunity for somebody else.

"We’ve got to expect injuries and there’ll be more than just him, I suggest, by the time we finally name the team to go to the World Cup."
