The Latest On Ben Smith & Ryan Crotty’s Fitness Following Lions Game
A worrying sight for All Blacks fans.
All Blacks vice-captain Ben Smith was forced to leave the field with another bout of concussion, his third this season in the 1st Test against the Lions on Saturday.
Centre Ryan Crotty injured his hamstring and will miss the second test and is in a race to be fit for the third.
Smith failed a concussion test “so he’ll go through all the protocols and we’ll see how he is,” All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said.
“Ryan Crotty has pulled his hammy, so we already had Jack Goodhue in as a replacement to help him out with his ribs.”
“Jack will be staying with us, and we will try to get Ryan ready maybe for the last test if we’re lucky.”
