The All Blacks has been dealt a major blow ahead of their second Bledisloe Cup test against the Aussie at Eden Park with the news that George Bridge has been ruled out.
Bridge season is over after he sustain an pectoral injury in training. At this stage it looked like he will be out of action for six months.
It is suspected that Blues wing Caleb Clarke may be promoted to the starting XV for this weekend clash.
Clarke has impressed the whole Super Rugby season for the Blues and had a great game off the bench this past weekend.
We expect a reshuffled back three for this weekend clash which should be announced on Friday.
