All Blacks midfield back Jack Goodhue will be sidelined for the rest of the year.

Scans have confirmed Goodhue ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the first-half of the Crusaders' golden point Super Rugby Aotearoa win over the Hurricanes.

All Blacks prop Joe Moody may be able to return to rugby in the not too distant future after he too limped off the field early in the match.

Moody has been diagnosed with a significant injury to the soft tissues at the base of his big toe, but at this stage he doesn't require surgery.

He will be reassessed by a specialist in two weeks' time, when a timeframe for his return will become clearer.
