Woodcock out of Eden Park test

11:59 am on 21 August 2012

The All Blacks prop Tony Woodcock has been ruled out of Saturday's Bledisloe Cup match against the Wallabies in Auckland because of injury.

Woodcock suffered rib cartilage damage during the Test in Sydney.

It means Wyatt Crockett will start at loosehead with Ben Franks remaining in the reserves as he can play both sides of the scrum.

The team will be confirmed on Thursday.
