The following All Blacks have been released to play for their clubs, if required: Karl Tu’inukuafe (Takapuna), Ofa Tuungafasi (Grammar TEC), Patrick Tuipulotu and Rieko Ioane (Ponsonby), Dalton Papalii (Pakuranga), Brodie Retallick (Central Hawke’s Bay) and Luke Jacobson (Hautapu). Meanwhile, Sonny Bill Williams has a tight hamstring and won’t play club rugby.

Brodie Retallick said he is looking forward to getting back to club rugby and that it will be great to see a number of All Blacks turning out for their clubs. "It will be great to see people on the sideline supporting their team. It's the backbone of New Zealand rugby and it's where it all started for us." said Retallick.

The All Blacks squad will assemble again in Auckland on Tuesday afternoon for a camp before flying to Buenos Aires on Friday evening.
