All Blacks lose two for opening rounds

It seems the Tri Nations loss to Australia on Saturday is not only a blow to the All Blacks mentally, but they have also lost two players to injury, of which they will only recover later in the tournament.

Kieran Read will miss the opening weeks and will most likely only be ready to take the field once the All Blacks reach the quarter finals. Fellow loose forwards Adam Thomson has been ruled out of the opening match against Tonga next weekend.

The sad part about these injuries is that players who will replace these stalwarts, will most likely perform quite well and should make for some interesting selections towards the latter part of the tournament.

Adam Thomson hasn’t exactly covered himself in glory in the games he has played in the All Black jersey and it will be interesting to see whether he features at all.
