All Blacks centre Ma'a Nonu looks set to miss the remainder of the Rugby Championship with a suspected broken forearm.

Nonu did not return to the field after halftime in Saturday's narrow win over the Springboks in Wellington and coach Steve Hansen admitted he is unlikely to feature in the upcoming games in South Africa and Argentina.

“We've got a pretty good idea of Ma'a's prognosis,” said Hansen.

“We think it's probably broken. He felt sore and the doctor decided he wasn't right at halftime.”

“Ryan [Crotty] should be back next week so that's good timing,” added Hansen, who will also have Malakai Fekitoa available.
