All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has called up Hosea Gear and Hika Elliot to attend the All Blacks training camp, coming in for injured players Cory Jane and Keven Mealamu respectively.

Mealamu has been struggling with a calf injury, but will still attend the camp, while Corey Jane has an ankle sprain which has ruled him out of the June Internationals. There has been no official replacement for the injured Richard Kahui for this camp.

Hansen was quoted as saying that he selected two utility backs in Ben Smith and Tamati Ellison, who can cover wing and fullback, but opted for Gear as a specialist wing.
