The pair was injured playing for the All Blacks in the test series against Wales, but trained with the team this week.

“It’s a great boost for the team ahead of tonight’s game,” said head coach Tana Umaga. “

Both boys have been training really hard to be considered for selection. They both want to play in this final game really badly and will give our bench some real strength.”

Also coming off the bench, as he has for the past two games since coming back from five weeks out with injury, is loose forward Blake Gibson.
