Rieko Ioane may not have an immediate chance to make up for his mistake in the first Bledisloe Cup test as his status for tomorrow’s clash against Australia at Eden Park is in doubt.
Ioane, who fell on the bench in the 16-all draw against the Wallabies in Wellington last weekend after losing the ball to try while diving, has doubts about a hamstring injury.
Peter Umaga-Jensen has been used as cover in the event Ioane is unable to play. The decision has to be made tomorrow.

The news would be another blow to the All Blacks backline after George Bridge was ruled out earlier this week after a training injury.
Bridge is out of training for up to six months after a chest injury, while Sam Whitelock is also out of tomorrow’s game due to a headache.
After Caleb Clarke and Tupou Vaa’i made their debut from the bench in Wellington, they switched to the starting line-up for the second Test as replacements.
