Former All Blacks hooker Andrew Hore has had a short lived retirement from top level rugby.

The 83-test All Black is now back in camp with the Southland Stags as injury cover.

It's understood Hore was contacted by former Highlanders teammate Jamie Mackintosh to help out the Stags after the injury to veteran hooker Jason Rutledge.

The Stags have confirmed Hore is training with the team, but will only play a part on the field should the side's two remaining hookers get injured.

Rutledge is expected to be out for the season.
