Injury which forced prop Gethin Jenkins to return home during the week has seen Rob Evans named to start the Test while Tomas Francis has been preferred at tighthead ahead of Samson Lee.

QUICK TAP: ALL BLACKS NAMED FOR FINAL TEST

The rest of the side is unchanged from that beaten 22-36 in the second Test by New Zealand in Welllington.

Second five-eighths Jamie Roberts, who suffered a head injury in Wellington, was passed fit to play.

Among the front row replacements Aaron Jarvis and Lee joined Scott Baldwin while lock Jake Ball has been named for the injured Bradley Davies.

Wales captain and flanker Sam Warburton will achieve his 50th Test as captain, including two Tests as captain of the British and Irish Lions.

Coach Warren Gatland said he wants Wales to finish the tour with an 80-minute performance they can be happy with.

"We improved going into the second Test and fought to the end and this weekend, we have to have the belief and confidence that we can take the victory.

"Playing under the roof in Dunedin will be a great atmosphere and a quick track and we need to take our game to the All Blacks," he said.

New Zealand have made five changes to their match-day 23.
