Dan Carter’s horror season with injury had another premature ending at Eden Park and he won’t play again in the Rugby Championship.
Carter, in his 97th Test, did his AC joint in the tackle that saw Springboks hooker Bismarck du Plessis shown a yellow card.
Carter joins injured All Blacks captain Richie McCaw, who will also not play again in the Rugby Championship.
Beaudan Barrett replaced Carter at Eden Park. Aaron Cruden and Tom Taylor, who were also injured playing flyhalf against Australia, are fit again.
