Samu Kerevi is the one face missing from last week’s squad with Tevita Kuridrani coming into the midfield. Henry Speight switches wings to the left flank to accommodate Haylett-Petty while last week’s debutant Curtis Rona shifts to the bench.

QUICK TAP: FRANKS RULED OUT OF SECOND BLEDISLOE TEST

In the pack, 72-Test veteran Rob Simmons comes into the starting line-up in a straight swap with the powerful Rory Arnold.

Meanwhile, the All Blacks have been forced to make a change to their team announced on Thursday morning. Owen Franks has been ruled out with an Achilles injury and is replaced in the match-day 23 by Nepo Laulala with Jeffery Toomaga-Allen coming into the squad as injury cover.
