The All Blacks star needs an operation on his knee after hurting himself in the World Cup defeat by England.

The All Blacks have been largely snubbed in a team of the year named by respected British magazineRugby World.

Forwards Joe Moody and Ardie Savea are the only New Zealand players selected with Savea placed out of position at No 8 which is something of a slight on his recently retired skipper Kieran Read.

With the All Blacks surrendering both the Rugby Championship and the World Cup to South Africa there is little room for argument in having their players overlooked in what was a disappointing 2019 for Steve Hansen’s team.
