All Blacks Team Named For Second Test With Lions

Steve Hansen has been forced to make two changes ahead of this weekend’s 2nd Test with the Lions.

The All Blacks boss is without Ryan Crotty and Ben Smith, with both players picking up knocks in Eden Park last week. Waisake Naholo comes into the side in place of Smith, with Dagg moving to fullback.

In the centre Anton Lienert-Brown comes in for Crotty, while uncapped Ngani Laumape has been promoted to the bench.
