Daniel Carter and Sonny Bill Williams among big players miss out on the squad to tour Africa, I mean South Africa. There will also be no Waisake Naholo as the start winger managed to break his leg on what was an impressive debut for the All Blacks. Hansen also sounded disappointed with the injury suffered by Naholo who he feels will make a great All Black. Nehe Milner Skudder was also omitted due to a rib injury that has not ecovered.

Forwards: Dane Coles, Keven Mealamu, Codie Taylor, Wyatt Crockett, Ben Franks, Owen Franks, Nepo Laulala, Tony Woodcock, James Broadhurst, Brodie Retallick, Luke Romano, Samuel Whitelock, Jerome Kaino, Richie McCaw (captain), Liam Messam, Kieran Read, Victor Vito
