Kahui injured his right shoulder after falling awkwardly during the All Blacks 32-12 victory over the Springboks on Saturday night, while Rokocoko has a minor hamstring strain and Cowan an abdominal strain.

The All Blacks arrived in Wellington yesterday to prepare for the second Test against the Springboks at Westpac Stadium next weekend.

All Blacks Coach Graham Henry said: “Richard will have further medical tests on his shoulder this week to assess the seriousness of the injury but he will definitely be unavailable for the second Test. Also with the injuries to Joe and Jimmy, we thought it prudent to bring in Zac and Alby as cover.”

Guildford, who played against the Irish and the Welsh in last month’s Steinlager Series Tests, and Mathewson will assemble with the All Blacks today.
