Damian McKenzie reacts to his injury against the Blues.
New Zealand full-back Damian McKenzie has been ruled out of the Rugby World Cup after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury on Saturday.

Hanson said he was impressed with the veteran centre's form this season. "You get the subtle touches and you get the brutality, as LB [Chiefs All Black midfielder Anton Lienert-Brown] found out in the weekend".
"What is important is he comes back when he is ready and he is confident", Hansen said.
"We've got to expect injuries and there'll be more than just him, I suggest, by the time we finally name the team to go to the World Cup".
"There are lot of good players in that position, so some good people are going to miss out".
A ruptured ACL usually requires anywhere between six to nine months on the sideline, meaning McKenzie would need a miracle recovery if he was to be any chance of being on the All Blacks' plane to Japan.
The All Blacks will play five tests before their first pool game of the World Cup, a test against South Africa in Yokohama on September 21.
At least nine All Blacks are now on the injured list and Hansen said the news about two of his senior players - midfielder Sonny Bill Williams and flanker Sam Cane - was promising.
