Woodcock out of Wallabies clash

Veteran All Blacks prop Tony Woodcock will miss Saturday's second Test against Australia after injuring a rib in the opening Bledisloe Cup clash last weekend, a team spokesman said Tuesday.

Woodcock picked up the injury during New Zealand's 27-19 victory in Sydney and was ruled out contention at training on Tuesday morning.

Wyatt Crockett is expected to be named as his replacement when the New Zealand team for the Auckland Test is announced on Thursday.

The All Blacks can claim the Bledisloe Cup for the 10th successive year with a win on Saturday.
