Centre stocks low in New Zealand

Looking forward to the Rugby Championship, it seems New Zealand coach Steve Hansen will have an interesting time finding fit centres to take on the Argentines, Boks and Wallabies.

It was reported a few weeks ago that Richard Kahui has a serious shoulder injury, ruling him out of taking any part in the inaugural competition. Further to this, Sonny Bill Williams has ruled himself out of further All Black caps, signing to play in Japan before returning to league.

The Stuff.co.nz website had further bad news for Hansen this morning, reporting that Conrad Smith will be out of action for about six weeks, following eye surgery. It is reported that Cmith had two procedures on his left eye for a retinal detachment. The surgery went well, but the player will not be able to take part in training for at least four weeks.

With the All Blacks selectors due to name a training squad early next week, it will be interesting to see who cracks the nod. It could spell a return to the starting line-up for Ma’a Nonu, who took no part in the June internationals against Ireland. This could also open the door to a shift for Dan Carter to the inside centre jersey, while Aaron Cruden steps into the flyhalf berth, but this is mere speculation on my part.
