DUNEDIN - Injuries continue to haunt veteran All Blacks Richie McCaw and Cory Jane, who have both been ruled out of the third Bledisloe Cup Test against Australia in Dunedin today.
Captain McCaw won't play his 121st Test and world record 32nd against the Wallabies after pulling up with a tight calf muscle late in training on Thursday. He has been replaced by openside flanker Sam Cane, with Steven Luatua coming onto the reserve bench.
Keiran Read takes over the captaincy, resuming that role after leading New Zealand in five of their nine Tests this year.
Jane suffered a hamstring injury and is replaced on the right wing by Charles Piutau.
