All Blacks Head Coach Steve Hansen said: "It's what we expected, but we knew it was going to take a bit of time, and we are now all looking forward to preparing for Saturday's challenge."
"We want to express our gratitude to the three parties involved in getting Sonny available for the All Blacks - Sonny's agent Koder Nasser, the NZRU and particularly the Panasonic Wild Knights - for their roles in allowing us to select him," Hansen added.
