Henry added that the centre pairing was in part an effort to fit the team’s best performers on the field: “Ma’a has been selected on form, Leon was very good at fullback on Saturday and Mils has been exceptional at centre for the All Blacks before,” Henry said. “We wanted them all in the side.”
The All Blacks coach noted that Andrew Hore and Nick Evans were included in the reserves because the selectors would like the pair to have more playing time if possible.
All members of the 32-man squad are free of major injury and were available for selection.
Leon MacDonald, Josevata Rokocoko, Mils Muliaina, Ma’a Nonu, Sitiveni Sivivatu, Dan Carter, Byron Kelleher, Rodney So’oialo, Richie McCaw (c), Jerry Collins, Ali Williams, Chris Jack, Carl Hayman, Keven Mealamu, Tony Woodcock,
Andrew Hore, Neemia Tialata, Jason Eaton, Chris Masoe, Andy Ellis, Nick Evans, Luke McAlister
