All Blacks winger Israel Dagg won't be seen on the field again in 2017, according to coach Steve Hansen.
Having come off with an injured knee against Argentina in New Plymouth, Dagg is now facing the rest of the year on the sidelines to recover.
"He'll need some time out of the game," Hansen said.
"It sounds like there's a bit of cartilage, surface damage to the knee."
"It probably means he'll be out for the rest of the year."
