Steve Hansen has jumped on the opportunity to recall All Black flyhalf Dan Carter, who has recovered from a calf injury.

Carter replaces Tom Taylor, who drops from the match 22 altogether. Outside Carter there will be a debutant in Francis Saili, who plays ahead of the slightly injured Ma’a Nonu, who gets a break this weekend.

Amongst the forwards we see Charlie Faumuina start ahead of Owen Franks, who is suffering from a groin injury.

All Blacks – 15 Israel Dagg, 14 Ben Smith, 13 Conrad Smith, 12 Francis Saili, 11 Julian Savea, 10 Daniel Carter, 9 Aaron Smith, 8 Kieran Read, 7 Richie McCaw (c), 6 Steven Luatua, 5 Sam Whitelock, 4 Brodie Retallick, 3 Charlie Faumuina, 2 Andrew Hore, 1 Tony Woodcock

Substitutes: 16 Dane Coles, 17 Wyatt Crockett, 18 Ben Franks, 19 Jeremy Thrush, 20 Sam Cane, 21 Tawera Kerr-Barlow, 22 Beauden Barrett, 23 Charles Piutau.
