All Blacks wing Cory Jane is sure to have his family on his mind ahead of tonight's test against Argentina as his son recovers from surgery.
Two-year-old Tennyson, nicknamed "Tenny Benny" by his parents, underwent surgery to remove fluid and pockets of infection from his lung.
Jane shared a photo of his "little soldier", the second of his three sons, on Twitter before the operation yesterday afternoon.
At 6pm, he tweeted that Tennyson's surgery had gone well.
"So now it's see how he is when he wakes up & find out how many days he has to stay in hospital."
Jane's wife, Amie, also tweeted, thanking friends for their "well wishes n support".
The Janes are used to hospitals: Tennyson's older brother, Cassius, was diagnosed with tuberous sclerosis, a rare genetic condition, when he was 15 months old.
The All Blacks' clash against Los Pumas kicks off at Westpac Stadium at 7.35 tonight.
