New Zealand centre Braydon Ennor has been sidelined for a lengthy period after rupturing his ACL during the North-South game played last weekend at Sky Stadium.

Ennor was named by All Blacks head coach Ian Foster in the 35-man squad for the Rugby Championship but now has been ruled out for the remainder of the year and also the start of the next season.

The 23-year-old was seen limping off the field in the game against North and will consult a specialist to analyse the extent of the damage.

New Zealand coach Foster expressed disappointment on the news on Ennnor and wished him a successful recovery.

"It's hugely disappointing for Braydon, but he is a strong young man and we'll be supporting him as he goes through his surgery and rehab over the next few months," Foster said.

Ennor played a solitary Test for New Zealand that came during the Rugby Championship last year and was part of the Crusaders squad that clinched the Super Rugby Aotearoa title last month.
