Sivivatu out for final Tri-Nations clash

2:51 pm on 13 September 2009

The All Blacks winger Sitiveni Sivivatu will miss the final Tri-nations rugby test against Australia after being injured in Saturday night's loss to South Africa in Hamilton.

Sivivatu, who scored a try in the 32 - 29 loss, left the field with ten minutes to go.

The All Blacks Doctor Deb Robinson says Sivivatu has a groin strain and will be out of rugby for four to six weeks.

The All Blacks now head to Wellington to prepare for the final Tri-nations clash against Australia at Westpac Stadium on Saturday.

A decision on whether a replacement player will be called into the All Blacks squad is yet to be made.
