Injury has forced the early departure of three members of the Wales rugby squad.

Veteran prop Gethin Jenkins, who's started both tests, picked up a calf injury in Wellington, while second forward Bradley Davies injured his knee in the same game.

Loose forward Josh Turnbull suffered a shoulder injury in his only game on tour against the Chiefs last week in Hamilton and had also headed home.

Forwards coach Robin McBryde insists the trio's absence won't make this weekend's third and final test against the All Blacks tougher. He says the remainder of the squad is fit and well and the departures won't affect them too much.

The All Blacks have today off before naming their team in the morning.
