  • New centre blow for All Blacks

George Moala has been ruled out of the All Blacks' Rugby Championship opener against the Wallabies on Saturday with a knee injury.

Drafted into camp as Sonny Bill Williams' replacement, Moala was on crutches with knee strapping as he entered the New Zealand team hotel after training on Tuesday.

Deciding on a centre combination seems to be All Blacks coach Steve Hansen's only real problem following the international retirements of two-time World Cup winners Ma'a Nonu and Conrad Smith as well as Williams' injury.
