As expected, owing to tragic family circumstances, Brodie Retallick will stay home. Rieko Ioane will tour but has a dislocated finger, so will miss the Baa-baas match. Uncapped names in bold.

Forwards: Kieran Read (c), Sam Cane, Ardie Savea, Matt Todd, Liam Squire, Jerome Kaino, Vaea Fifita, Sam Whitelock, Scott Barrett, Luke Romano, Patrick Tuipulotu, Nepo Laulala, Ofa Tu’ungafasi, Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, Kane Hames, Wyatt Crocket, Tim Perry, Dane Coles, Codie Taylor, Nathan Harris, Asafo Aumua

Backs: Damian McKenzie, David Havili, Matt Duffie, Waisake Naholo, Rieko Ioane, Seta Tamanivalu, Ryan Crotty, Anton Lienert-Brown, Jack Goodhue, Sonny Bill-Williams, Ngani Laumape, Beauden Barrett, Lima Sopoaga, Aaron Smith, TJ Perenara, Tawera Kerr-Barlow

Julian Savea had a good weekend for Wellington but hasn't found his way back in. You wouldn't call wing a weakness for New Zealand, though, as some of the brightest takent in world rugby is keeping him out.

Barbarians - November 4th
France - November 11th
France XV - November 14th
Scotland - November 18th
Wales - November 25th

Havent heard of Tim Perry myself but havent been following the Mitre 10 that closely either.

Aumuas progress is going to be followed closely, in stunning form for Wellington after the U20's in June.

I like Duffie too, a typically non compromising ex-Leaguie. Quick enough, and a very mature head, and loves the contact.

Read,Whitelock,Coles,SBW,Leinert -Brown not travelling with main party,5 players
including Matt Drummond,Mounga,Dominic Bird,will tour with Barbarians then add
to the France tour afterwards.
Inference some or all will be involved in France matches,doubtless if required Mounga
would join main party if injuries require it.
Loss to Barbarians very possible as the young guns will be selected for AB`s a proper
traditional festival game.
NH sides will now try to down AB`s this year looking forward to it laughing laughing laughing Hug
