All Blacks flank Liam Squire will miss the rest of the Rugby Championship due to a shoulder injury.
Squire started against the Boks on Saturday and appeared to have suffered a shoulder knock after he was bumped off by Frans Malherbe and replaced by Patrick Tuipulotu.
But the All Blacks confirmed on Sunday that Squire would be unavailable for the remainder of the tournament because of a hand injury.
UPDATE: All Blacks loose forward Liam Squire will miss the rest of the Investec Rugby Championship with a hand injury. #NZLvRSA

This news comes after prop Joe Moody (thumb) was also ruled out and lock Brodie Retallick’s status remains in doubt after suffering a shoulder injury against Argentina last week.
