The All Blacks have lost another player from their tour of Europe.

The Canterbury halfback Andrew Ellis is to return home after suffering another rib injury in the win over Scotland at Murrayfield yesterday.

A replacement will be named today.

He is the second player to return home after Andrew Hore left after the match against Australia in Hong Kong.
