Beauden Barrett will not be on the field in the first Bledisloe Cup test this weekend against Australia.
His place will be taken by the talented Damien Mckenzie who will now take the number 15 jumper.
Barrett had suffered a tight achilles tendon at training which ruled him out for the clash. It looks like a one match injury at this stage All Black coach Foster told the media.
McKenzie has 23 tests to his name and scored 12 tries.
All Blacks: Damian McKenzie, Jordie Barrett, Rieko Ioane, Jack Goodhue, George Bridge, Richie Mo’unga, Aaron Smith, Ardie Savea, Sam Cane (c), Shannon Frizell, Sam Whitelock, Patrick Tuipulotu, Ofa Tuungafasi, Codie Taylor, Joe Moody.
Replacements: Dane Coles, Karl Tu’inukuafe, Nepo Laulala, Tupou Vaa’i, Hoskins Sotutu, TJ Perenara, Anton Lienert-Brown, Caleb Clarke.
