All Blacks Head Coach Steve Hansen said: "It's obviously hugely disappointing for Luke but he is a strong character and is already planning his rehab with our medical staff. We hopefully will have Beauden ready to prepare for the Argentina Test, while Aaron will start his knee rehabilitation later this week, which will give us a better indication of when he will be back playing.
"It's an exciting time for the replacement players Tom Taylor and Colin Slade and it's also a challenge now for the rest of the team to make their entry into the side as seamless as possible."
