Scratch the name 'Sonny Bill Williams' from the All Blacks team sheet for the much-anticipated test with Ireland on Sunday morning (NZT).
The second-five suffered a Grade One AC joint injury late in the first half of the All Blacks' 16-15 win over England at Twickenham.

The injury adds to a growing list suffered by the former rugby league star throughout a frustrating 2018 season.
Hurricanes midfield back Ngani Laumape, who scored three tries against Japan a week ago, has been called in as injury cover, with Williams staying on until the team arrives in Rome for the test against Italy.
"There's a pretty good chance he'll be right for Italy, so he'll stay, but Ngani is coming over to make sure, if we lose someone this week, we've got someone," said All Blacks coach Steve Hansen.
Loosehead prop Joe Moody, who lacerated his eyelid in training last week, is the only other squad member unavailable for selection against Joe Schmidt's Irish side.
