ABs winger out for six weeks

6:41 am on 5 September 2008

All Blacks winger Anthony Tuitavake is out for six weeks after breaking his jaw during the team's 101 - 14 win over Manu Samoa in New Plymouth on Wednesday night.

Tuitavake will not be replaced in the All Blacks squad with the selectors deciding that in Richard Kahui, Rudi Wulf, Sitiveni Sivivatu and Isaia Toeava they have enough cover for the wing position.

The All Blacks assemble in Auckland on Sunday to prepare for next weekend's tri nations decider against Australia in Brisbane.
