All Blacks centre ruled out
- 16 Jun 2014
Conrad Smith will miss the third Test against England in Hamilton because of a broken thumb.
Smith will be out of action for five to six weeks, with Malakai Fekitoa or Ryan Crotty expected to take in his place at outside centre.
'Ryan's been there and done that and been in the atmosphere, so that's what it will come down to – whether we think Malakai's ready to start or not,' said All Blacks coach Steve Hansen.
