All Blacks unchanged for Boks

The All Blacks will go into this Saturday’s crucial Tri Nations clash with South Africa with an unchanged side.

Former Lions coach Graham Henry has named the same XV that hammered Australia 39-10 in Auckland a fortnight ago as his side look to put themselves back in the driving seat for Tri Nations glory.

Centre Richard Kahui continues on the right wing, with Jimmy Cowan retaining the No9 shirt for what Henry has described as ‘the biggest challenge in world rugby at the moment’.

Isaia Toeava’s inclusion ahead of Anthony Tuitavake among the replacements is the only change to the matchday 22.

New Zealand (vs South Africa, Saturday, August 16, Cape Town, 2.05pm BST)
