All Blacks: Jordie Barrett ruled out for rest of the year

Barrett made his debut for the All Blacks against Samoa early this year and started at fullback in the final test against the British and Irish Lions.

The 20-year-old suffered the injury in the Hurricanes Super Rugby semi-final loss to the Lions in Johannesburg and will require surgery, which means he won't be back in 2017.

"It's a pretty clear cut injury. The ligament has come off and it's basic reattachment," said assistant coach Ian Foster.
