Wonder if NZ are obliged to play a few 'named' players. SBW, Read and Barrett might start?
does anyone have the list of player available?....i got confused with who was going where etc
edit, this is what the NZ Herald say...could still be a scary good team
Afaso Aumua, Dane Coles, Liam Coltman
Tim Perry, Rueben O'Neill, Ofa Tuungafasi, Angus Ta'avao, Tyrel Lomax
Vaea Fifita, Jackson Hemopo, Gareth Evans, Dillon Hunt, Dalton Papali'i, Luke Whitelock (probable captain)
Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi, Mitchell Drummond, Byrn Hall
Richie Mo'unga, Brett Cameron
Ngani Laumape, Matt Proctor
Waisake Naholo, Nehe Milner-Skudder, Jordie Barrett, George Bridge
British Irish Lions
Doubt it they’re flying to London on Thursday for early prep for the England game.
Hmm, looks like it has not be picked up by any of the UK TV channels....was hoping to get a good look at some of the up and coming ABs and seeing how Japan are shaping up.
I did see that it will be streamed on the All Blacks web page for countries where it is not on TV. I don't know if that induces the UK.
New Zealand: 15 Jordie Barrett, 14 Nehe Milner-Skudder, 13 Matt Proctor, 12 Ngani Laumape, 11 Waisake Naholo, 10 Richie Mo’unga, 9 Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi, 8 Luke Whitelock (c), 7 Dalton Papalii, 6 Vaea Fifita, 5 Jackson Hemopo, 4 Patrick Tuipulotu, 3 Angus Ta’avao, 2 Dane Coles, 1 Ofa Tuungafasi

im surprised drummonds' (and hall) there. wouldve thought that weber is the next closest thing to an aSmith that we have.
this is an exciting squad
most exciting game so far
BIIG win for Japan coming up here. Well done Japan!
That was clearly illegal from Japan. Lol.
Japan killing it. Are they pro's? Yes they are.
All Blacks obliterated. Japan, an absolute masterclass in Union once again.
I know they got battered but Japan putting 5 tries on the ABs is pretty crazy, even if the ABs were never in danger of losing
Nah, nah. Japan, easy world #1. Crazy good. We've found a new golden team.
great rugby from both sides, loved it
for all folks saying the AB's debutants cheapened the jersey like Mr Duncan Garner, they need to get real. Hansen doing the right thing and all those players were worthy of being capped, been playing great rugby for years in NZ
preparing for the future and next generation getting these guys in early
Bridge, Papali'i will be future All Black stars
The phrase gets thrown around a lot and I've never agreed with it but the commotion surrounding Japan "approaching" (Standing 10m away)the haka suggests to me that the game has gone soft... Or at least the fans.
Highlights. A stupid amount of space in behind the Japan line, I've never even heard of the guy who started for them at fullback. Were Matsushima and Naguya unavailable?
The ABs have been and always will be snowflakes about the haka.
Not quite what the French did with their arrow shaped approach during the RWC 2011 final.
