Ma'a Nonu has been ruled out of tonight's match against the Hurricanes in Wellington due to a calf injury.

The All Blacks midfielder had been experiencing some tightness in his left calf during the week, and while he travelled with team to Wellington yesterday, he was reassessed by the medical team this morning and they have decided not to risk him.

Jackson Willison will replace him in the number 12 jersey.
