All Black Damian McKenzie is returning home from Argentina following a family bereavement.

McKenzie will miss Sunday’s Buenos Aires rematch against the Pumas but will rejoin the side for the final match of their Rugby Championship campaign against South Africa.

The All Blacks side to face Argentina will be named later today.

He was named SANZAAR’s Super Rugby Player of the Year for the third consecutive year in 2018, his first full season in the No. 10 jersey.
