All Blacks: Jordie Barrett, Sevu Reece, Anton Lienert-Brown, Ngani Laumape, Rieko Ioane, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara; Ardie Savea, Sam Cane (c), Akira Ioane, Sam Whitelock, Scott Barrett, Ofa Tuungafasi, Codie Taylor, Karl Tu'inukuafe.

Reserves: Asafo Aumua, Alex Hodgman, Tyrel Lomax, Patrick Tuipulotu, Cullen Grace, Brad Weber, Damian McKenzie. Will Jordan.

Akira Ioane, Asafo Aumua, Cullen Grace and Will Jordan will have their test debuts so Foster  is taking the opportunity to get new players some experience. Will this backfire, what say you?

Still a good team justwin...

Resting Mo’unga looks like Beaudy back at 10 Jordie at FB Rieko and Sevu Reece wings with Will Jordan on the bench getting his debut. Midfield Laumape and ALB. Ardie back from his week with whanau and Akira at 8. I like the team good to see Foster give those young boys a shot.

Probably one of their better teams, not sure why Riki is played at 13, but Laumape is a mini tank along with Leonard brown, should be a good midfield battle. Akira has been one of the form 8's SR for a while. Locks are a bit weak. Nice to Sevu Reece back on the wing. Would have gone with Mckenzie at 15

Jordie Barratt seems to be getting better over time as he accumulates experience. He looks a bit slow when side stepping, but he is 6.5. 

Unlikely to ever be as good as Beaudon, but he could be a first choice starting player for the All Blacks for important games.

I agree Sharkbok, Beauden Barrett is the best of the Barret boys but both of his brothers are  improving. Beauden has that magic that's for sure.
