    Hey, my friends!

    A quick and easy question for y’all:

    I just learned there’s a rule in Super Rugby that All-Blacks don’t play for the first two weeks. Makes sense. But how do we know who that is? Obviously we’re a long way away from the RWC, so we can’t know who they’ll be ... so, I assume they use the most recent roster? But with selection being so uncertain, how is that valuable? And what about a player who Steve Hansen wanted to play, but couldn’t due to injury or some other factor?

    Ok I guess that wasn’t quick lol

    Thanks, y’all,

    Go Highlanders,

    Dave

    I think that applies more to the experienced, regular starters for the All Blacks who've got more than 10 caps behind their name.

    But you will see that the SA, Aussie, Argentina and Japan teams are all going to do some sort of rest rotation for the players they want to go to the World Cup.
