Following yet another victory over the Wallabies this weekend, the All Blacks have named their squad to take part in the End of Year Tour, involving four new faces to test out at this stage of the season.

The new faces are Luke Whitelock (flanker, Crusaders), Joe Moody (prop, Crusaders), Dominic Bird (lock, Crusaders) and Frank Halai (wing, Blues). There is also an ‘apprentice player’ that will tour with the team, Ardie Savea, who is the flanker brother of Julian Savea.

TJ Perenara is called up the squad again, still waiting to make his debut after having to withdraw from the Rugby Championship side due to injury.
