The Hurricanes will be without the services of openside flanker Ardie Savea for a month due to a finger injury.
Savea sustained the injury during the second half of the Hurricanes' 20-13 victory over the Highlanders in Dunedin on Friday.
The Wellington-based franchise's coach Chris Boyd confirmed that Savea will be sidelined for some time.
"He split his finger, the joint came out, so he's had to have that re-done," Boyd told New Zealand's ONE News.
"He's probably out for four weeks."
